This piece started out as VERY UGLY. and I was ready to throw it out but I thought about my mantra that every piece going through an ugly stage and you just have to keep working on it so I didn't give up and just kept adding layers.
Now, it's my favorite piece in my Abstract Mixed Media series.
There is something about the depth of color and the composition that keeps my eyes moving around the piece.
I wish I knew how I did this so I could make another piece but that's quite impossible. Every work of art I make has it's own voice and path from beginning to end. I guess that's why I love being an artist since I never know how my day will progress. Will I be frustrated? Yes. Will I hate my work? Yes. Will I try to "fix" what is not working? Yes. Will I love the eventual outcome? Unknown.
In this case, it worked.
