I started to create a canvas using a technique I saw used by another artist that I admire very much. No matter how hard I tried, I could not produce the outcome I wanted. So, I put the canvas aside in the pile of unfinished art.
|That's it on the top of the pile.|
I have pulled it out many times trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it.
The other day I wrote in my task list to use that canvas and complete the painting. As usual, I procrastinated and by midday I had completed all of my other tasks except THAT ONE.
I was determined, however, so first I covered the previous attempted art with a layer of joint compound. I used the excuse that it had to dry to put it off yet again.
Yep, I moved that "task" to the next day. I am not sure why, but it had become just that, a task.
Fast forward to the next day.....
Rested and determined, I added a coat of gesso to the canvas. Once that was dry, I began a background with some gelatos and a collage of vintage papers.
All of a sudden, it was no longer a task... Here are a few pictures I snapped as I created a piece I love!!!
Thank you for following along in my life and art journeys.
