Nothing last forever.....

Especially not so good artwork! It's no secret if you've followed my blog at all that I've had a love/hate relationship with canvas.  I love canvas!  It has not always loved me however.  And I have had to be determined that I was not going to let it get the upper hand.  The canvas that is.
Take this 16 x 20 that I painted back in 2012.  Valiant try but yeah....NO!
So again, if you've followed me I have been periodically grabbing up these bad canvases that have a pile all to themselves and re-working them.  Sometimes it means total covering up or in the case of this canvas it had some elements that were useable. So I covered the "good" parts with masks.
Then I began building an entire new piece of artwork from there.  And here is the finished piece!
Out with the old and bad.  But look what can come from persistence and a couple of years!  Haha!
So don't throw out any of that bad art you have laying around.  Breathe some new life into it.
Have a great weekend!!

  1. these are fantastic ! love the color ! Happy PPF !

  2. Good tip about using a mask and great result.

  3. You know what I loved the old canvas and I'm sure it had a place in your life at one time... I love the style of it...and now this revision...I love too!! Honouring the old piece turned into the new one is an evolution of where you came from artistically. I think I just realized something just this moment!! Thanks for that!! Very inspirational!

  4. What a wonderful painting - I have many times painted over a big "no" painting. Time and practice are what improves out skills.

  5. Very pretty flowers, I like how it ended up!
