In a recent post, "becoming Brave HeArted" I wrote how "i'm trying to be brave enough to listen to the voice that's deep inside trying to get out, not to hold back and be safe.... & as i do, i see my art getting more expressive, bolder and more abstract!" here's my next piece.....
This mixed media painting is on the large side for me, 6x6 inches, box canvas with 1 1/2 in deep sides that are painted.
I re-learned an important lesson the hard way with this one. When i first did this, my heart was pounding wildly at how perfectly the painting captured my vision, and then i did what i told myself i would never do again.... i thought "what if i add...."; and it wasn't bad, but then i had to add to that, and then by my third addition i hated it.
So after kicking myself, i started fresh & when my heart was happy once more i STOPPED! :)
i just hope i don't fall off the wagon & start doing the "what ifs" again!
And on a side note Peggy Gatto was having a "Garden Cross Give-Away" and i was one of the winners! What a wonderful way to kick start July!! Thank you Bunches Peggy!!! :D
