On to the Next Project

now that my series is done I’m ready to go back to painting on canvas

Similar to what I’ve done in the past but I added a new twist. I think I’m close to calling this one done. Now for a name…..Who’s Watching? Garden Eyes Watching Over the Garden

12″ x 12″ on stretch canvas, mixed media


Day 8 – Painting Over and Trying Again

….to post or not to post

When a piece of art doesn’t work do you own up to it and post it anyway? Since I’m on this Daily Art Challenge for March I feel like I’m being dishonest when I don’t talk about my failed pieces. I seem to be in a rut right now. Nothing I do seems to work. I’ve painted over this one piece now three times. If it doesn’t work this time I think I need to start fresh and put this piece aside.

I wanted to paint using bright and cheery colours but it just didn’t work for me. I’m better off painting intuitively. Here is where it started and how I repainted over it this morning. No guarantees that this is going to work.
