Spring Flowers


Sometimes, you crap something up so irretrievably, you’ve just got to start over.

The pic below was my beginning. The more I added embellishments, the crappier it got.

I just didn’t like it. So out came the black gesso. I painted the canvas completely and then added colored marks with stencils and acrylic paint.

Using a palette knife, I added white flower petals and green leaves. I painted on stems and some centers to the flowers. Once I was happy with the look, I placed the picture in a white frame with a white mat. Now it looks cheerful and spring-y, and I’m happy I didn’t settle on the crap I first started with!
