Let It Go

"Painting should never look as if it were done with difficulty, however difficult it may actually have been."  Robert Henri

A good reason to clear out old paintings, unfinished paintings or paintings you are ambivalent about is if they look labored, tired or overworked.  It doesn't matter if you've solved the problems.  If you've lost the joy, you've lost the painting.  Let it go.

If you need an art book to pack in your suitcase, read in bed before you turn the light out, or carry in your purse for when you're waiting in line - try The Art Spirit by Robert Henri.
