Perseverance is stubbornness with a purpose…

People often say I am stubborn, mostly when they are not happy with me. And I admit, I can be stubborn at times. But in certain situation, it is more about persevering than stubbornness. 

This is an example. Here is the story. 

I painted this girl… And I hated the outcome! She looked so tortured.

I can’t even begin to describe how much I dislike this. But I can’t just walk away from it. She bugged me.  So I decided to gesso over her. I liked her a lot better already 😂

And added collage over her. Getting more interesting. But where is this going?

 So I added some paint…and more paint…

But something just wasn’t right. She looked scary. I was frustrated…

And then I got it… with all the coldness around her, I need some warmth on her face.. 

And now I am happy. Finally. 

And this is Perseverance … Stubbornness with a purpose.
