I started this painting of a monarch butterfly’s chrysalis.  Ruined it.  Threw it away.  Started another.  This is what I ended up with.  Hated it.  Thought about why it wasn’t working for me = background color choice?  Maybe.  So...thought about purples and reds behind the chrysalis instead (darker, too).  

I experimented with a few colors I have.  Knew right away the dark purple on the left top was what I wanted.  Sometimes you just have to start over.

You can see that ANY of the darker background  colors makes this little green thing stand out more so...

Will the third time be the charm?

We shall see!
