Sometimes a painting and I cannot seem to be on a groove together! It happens when I’m just not sure that what I’m painting is what I really want to convey. When that happens and I hang the painting, still not feeling the groove, I bring out the gesso and give the canvas a new life! The thing about painting is that it’s just paint and a canvas…you can start over. I guess the bigger lesson in this is that we should approach the canvas with no fears. After all, it’s about expression and we do this for no one else but ourselves. So I just wanted to share one of my second life works with you….and still, I’m not sure…will it actually have a third life! The image above is the re-do….the second life for this canvas. The image below was the first one. Have you gone through this? I’d like to hear what you’ve gone through.
