Daily Prompt: Let It Be

A restaurant that removed your favorite item from the menu, a bad cover of a great song… Write a post about something that should’ve been left untouched, but wasn’t. Why was the original better?” –The Daily Post

Retouching a painting.

A lot of artwork is retouched as it ages for preservation purposes but sometimes I question whether or not that should be done. If the artist has passed, how do we know they are ok with that? Perhaps they wanted their original peice left as is no matter what. I feel like it’s no longer the real thing after we do our touch ups.
