To preserve my sanity, I have been working on an art quilt which is in the final stages of completion. I'm happy with it but need a break.
What I'm not happy with is an oil painting I did last year. I'm sure we've all got artwork that for some reason or another just isn't right. I paint over not toss these works - waste not, want not. I happened to see some work of artist Andre Kohn in a local gallery. I love, love his work. The texture he creates is fantastic. I could hardly wait to get home and give it a try.
Painting I'm not happy with - the facial features are "off" - I didn't feel like trying to fix it.
I turned the painting upside down and spread molding past all over. Once throughly dry, I sanded it enough to get all the loose bits off and smooth it out a little - I wanted to preserve all that gorgeous texture. Now I need to summon my muse and decide what to do next. Wish me luck!
