murder your darlings

I have a habit of taking old paintings, tearing them apart, and trying to put them back together. Here is an updated version of an older painting that I did this afternoon. As Ian McCaig says, sometimes you have to murder your darlings. – in other words don’t get too attached to your work – everything is disposable and can be improved upon.
