Title: Blue Is Just A Color
Mixed media (acrylic, watercolor ground, Ziller ink, walnut ink, watercolor, pastels, linen thread)
8″ x 8″ x 1 1/2″
This is an example of a piece turning out nothing like the original direction it started in.
Sometimes a canvas will sit around for a long time before I figure out what it wants to be. If it sits around long enough, I’ll often cover the surface entirely and start again from there.
In the moment, that may feel like a bit of a defeat, but in fact, those “failed” canvases that I paint over often achieve a depth and richness that the original never could have possessed.
Kind of like life: our mistakes and do-overs are often our greatest treasures.
