I kept the sky...

Sometimes a painting, no matter how hard you try, just doesn't work. This day I thought that the worst thing about the painting was the sky. It was dull, gray, overcast, misty rainy - just yukky as far as lighting and color. But as I finished the painting, I wasn't satisfied at all with anything -- except the sky. Very strange. So I wiped off everything - except the sky - and used the canvas for another painting. But I left the sky, which worked really well with the later work. Happy little accident?? No, I think it was just taking what didn't work at a particular time and using it another time...a recycling of time.
