There Will Be Things You Can’t Fix

I’ve got a few daisies sitting on my painting table in the bottom of a little spray water bottle.

This painting I did from the daisies is still waiting to be fixed, that is taken further than where it is now, at the very least adding yellow centres to each. Will I succeed or will I spoil what’s currently beautiful about it? Should I try or should I enjoy it as it is?

Flowers are cheerful, undemanding company, quietly reminding me to try not to despair about things I can’t fix.

As does this page from Matt Haig‘s “Truth Pixie“, which I have printed out and stuck up.
