There comes a time in your painting that you need to realize that it is what it is.

There is nothing wrong with the painting even though you may think you see all sorts of mistakes.

Stop criticizing the work (and yourself) and learn to approve and love what is there.

In other words,

own it!

It is no longer a mistake but you meant to do that.

You wanted the paint to run that way or you muddied that section to help the focal point glow.

And so on, and so forth.

Be confident in your mistakes.

It is part of the key to success.

Accept and embrace.

Then learn and move on.
