What If Painting Completed for Now....

What if I painted the clothes pins purple? What if I added a trumpet vine that wasn't really there? What if I bought burritos for lunch at a different Mexican restaurant today? Oops, forget about the burrito comment, but they were pretty good.....What if I I darkened some shadows that weren't all that dark in my reference photo? The what ifs continued to come as I continued to work on this painting and to my surprise I found it a really fun way to work. So, what if i continue to paint with my new attitude?

First finished painting done with new attitude

Better than saying 'If only'. Yes it really worked.
