Creation Destruction Creation

Sometimes I will complete a painting and am not happy with it. Maybe I like part of a painting but all together it doesn't work. I've been pondering what to do with some large paintings in the CafĂ© series.  I never liked the colors. I was painting an actual place, The Romper Room, and those were the actual colors.

What to do with art you're not happy with? Give it away, throw it away or paint over it.

After their last outing, I decided I would paint over some of them.

First on the destruction block, "Romper Room". So much dark red.

New room colors. Add a window.

Will this work out or will I regret the loss of the original? I'll have to keep painting to find out.
