After spending the better part of yesterday working on my fabric bowl, I got up this morning and realized that I have gone about as far as I can with this particular sample.

It started here with a basic fabric bowl/plate design.

and then some stitching was added

Then came the paint.

And some highlighting of the stitched design.

Then a repaint because the color was was too dark.

And a final highlighting of the stitched design.

And now today it looks overworked and the design flaws are very obvious. In particular this seam line. The other two seams are not obvious but this particular seam is very noticeable and looks out of place.

I think as artists we want every creation we make to be perfect and beautiful no matter what the cost. And our tendency is to want to fix things rather than admit defeat. But sometimes things just can’t be fixed and this one of those times.

So rather than spend any more time on this particular piece, I’m taking what I learned and starting a fresh new project.
