Hmmm... I have a problem

My very troubling problem is that I do not like this piece of art!

It was supposed to look more like my first one...

The problem is that a friend of mine was moving away and I wanted to give her something of mine ~ so I gave her my first circle mosaic. (FIRST PROBLEM)What I didn't do was check with my hubby first~ um...ya... little-did-I-know that this was my hubby's favorite piece of my art work! Why didn't he say so before now? I guess he didn't think I would ever give it away!

Anyway, to make a long story short I decided I would make him another one! (SECOND PROBLEM) I soon discovered that a lot of work went into said first piece and I did not have enough stamina to create an exact replica, nor did I have the same color of papers. Sooooooo... instead I grabbed a whole new set of colors and went to work... which leaves me with the (BIGGEST PROBLEM), both hubbub and I do not like the finished product! Yikes-a-doodle! Now what am I going to do? I didn't choose the correct coloring of papers for this mosaic, it just doesn't sit well with me. I am thinking I need to start over and work at it a little bit at a time? What do you think???? Back to the drawing board I'm thinkin!

Hugs and blessings to you - HAPPY FRIDAY!

By the way... here's the piece for Madelyn all framed-up!

Hi Kelly, well I love both, the second is cool and calm and the first if warm and earthy.... You will just have to bite the bullet so to speak and make another warm and earthy one, even if it takes some time... it will be worth it.... and lucky friend... have a good weekend... :)

Thanks for finding my blog so I could find your wonderful blog Kelly :o) This is such a warm and inviting and uplifting place... I’ll be back often. Don’t tell hubby, but work a little at a time and surprise him for Christmas. Love them both by the way ;o)

I've done the same thing, Kelly! I gave my prized "Hollyhock" painting to my sister-in-law. I tried several times to recreate the painting, but it didn't have the same emotion or enthusiasm as the first time around. I've never tried to mimic an original piece of artwork since. I just wasn't the same person in that same moment, and I'm ever so grateful for the evolution! Both of your pieces are marvelous. :o)
