This painting didn’t quite work in it’s previous state. It made the waitress look as if she was standing in a toilet! It’s funny that I kind of knew that but didn’t acknowledge it. But when someone else noticed, I thought “of course it does!” and vowed to change it.
The painting isn’t going anywhere so I can experiment with it. I got rid of the tiles at her back and painted the grey over the pink. I’ll probably get rid of the ceramic edging at the shoulder too. It’s a great thing, destroying something!
