So I had a great day today! I got in some art time and that always makes my days FABULOUS! After posting all the other beautiful artists work I got inspired! Thank you to everyone who have joined the blog hop - I have so enjoyed getting to know you all through your blogs. I was looking through my previous artwork and I found some paintings that I had created though they never sat right with me... have you ever had that feeling??? Sometimes I spend hours and hours painting something only to never be completely satisfied! We are such our worst inner critics aren't we? So... I hummed and hawed over a few of my paintings and realized that I would never actually do anything with them in the long run... so I cut them up! I cut them into 2"x3" inch pieces and started to glue them onto a hard canvas board.
Once they were all glued into place I placed the whole piece into a frame but ironically enough... I still wasn't satisfied. It took me awhile to figure out what the problem was. I LOVE my art when it is outlined in black! I don't know why... that's just the way I am! LOL!
I went back over each square and outlined them all in black with a sharpie marker and guess what? I am all good now... I love it! LOL! Sometimes you just have to work it out on your own right? I am glad that I did or I would stare at it for years not quite liking it!
Well, happy creating everyone! Thanks so much for your inspiration!
Hugs to you all!
