Pause to better move forward.

So I've been having a bit of a challenge with my self portraits. I have several images that I want to create. Actually I have loads of images in my head that I'd like to create, but there are two I've been working on and I feel that I need to completely start the editing process over.

I'm still learning photoshop in many ways and it can take me so very long to do things that I know should not take that long. And sometimes I continue in the direction I've been going even because I'm pretty sure it's not the right way to achieve what I have in my head. But when you've spent so long on an image it isn't easy to simply chuck it all and start over. I worry that if I do that I'll somehow loose the image I was striving to create. 

I know it's just silly but there it is. That's why I sometimes need to not work on my uncompleted images. Until I can let them go so I can find them again.

Now I'm ready to clear the board and begin anew. My vision will be the same no matter what and I have had time to think of a new way in which to try to bring out what is in my head.
