“After School” 22″x30″ acrylic painting on rag paper Â©Gail Niebrugge
This original painting was inspired by my stay in the village of Atmautluak, Alaska. Unfortunately I was not satisfied with the image and after a year of working on it and fussing with it I painted another image over the top. I’m so glad that I had the foresight to photograph this artwork before it was destroyed. Today I find the painting charming.Â I learned a valuable lesson from this experience; Don’t be too quick to judge your work, let it rest awhile, sometimes it takes a few years before the true value of a painting can be determined.
