Dealing With Failure

I read the other day that Eric Ravilious (an artist I love) used to reckon that only one in every three or four of his paintings was any good. He dealt with the failures by cutting them up into little squares. That way they couldn't slip out into the world and shame him.

I've only been painting for a couple of days but the failures are piling up. I guess I'll put mine on the bonfire.
