I have accepted fear as a part of life - specifically the fear of change... I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back. Erica Jung

Repurposing An Old Painting

So, has anyone had a failed painting, but didn't want to ditch a perfectly good canvas (especially a large expensive canvas)? I did and decided to redo this one, so I started out riping some of the elements off of it, then gessoed over it. After it dried there were more elements I could ripe off but that added an interesting look to the canvas. Next will come my trusty Sharpie marker for the writing elements. Then a wash of yellow orange (why? Because that is what I like). That is as far as I got so far. Tune in later.
