When a painting goes wrong

Today I started a painting of eggs on a white towel. I worked on it for three hours when I realized it just wasn't making it. I scraped some areas down and started again. I couldn't get the painting to hold together. Sometimes when this happens I set it down and go back to it in a few days but today I gave up and cleaned the canvas off. Sometimes it's better to give up and try on another day.

"When a picture isn't realized, you pitch it in the fire and start another." (Paul Cezanne)
