One of my drawing teachers in art school told us to turn our papers upside down to check the composition of a drawing. Or to look in a mirror, holding the piece. That this would help us see what was needed to make the drawing work. Of course, we would turn it right side up to finish and present it for criticism.

Well, the piece shown above was framed wrong. It was framed not upside down but rotated to one side. I decided to leave it that way. And to continue on. After all, if the composition is sound, it works. Right? Maybe not as well as it would have. But as I said, I have to move on.
