How to Destroy (and Recover) a Painting in 10 (or so) Not-So-Easy Steps

“Mollycoddling the Collywobbles” | Oil on canvas | 18″ x 18″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn - This painting started out very differently than it ended up. In a month full of daily interruptions (far more then the usual tolerable level of daily interruptions), I had a hard time keeping the same frame of mind while I worked sporadically on this canvas.

A great artist… must be shaken by the naked truths that will not be comforted. This divine discontent, this disequilibrium, this state of inner tension is the source of artistic energy.

— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
