Have you ever made a picture and loved the idea but not so sure about how it turned out? I wanted to create a totem pole of some kind so I doodled this picture of a stacked heart, owl, butterfly and bird. I loved the idea but I am no so in love with the colors. So here is the first attempt, but I really want to do it over with different colors. I am just not feeling the love! What do you do when you love the idea but just not the final project??
So I going to remake my totem pole next week with less/more color? Who knows but I am not ready to give up on this pic!!
Well, the second project that I was working on met the gesso. After 'trying' to make an Easter egg tree I just couldn't stand the way it looked. SO instead I covered the whole canvas with gesso. However, the pieces of paper that I couldn't pick off were sticking through the gesso and I was making a bigger mess than I started with. So I added a stencil. Yesterday, I bought one of Donna Downey's new stencils at Altered Angel and today I threw it into the paint. Now . . . I will let it dry and then play!!
And now onto a family weekend in Atlanta . . .
