This recycled canvas is my favorite. The inspirational napkin was worth all of the $6.oo that it cost! I love the colors - I love the coffee filters and I love the antique buttons! It takes guts to paint over a painting - even a bad painting - but the opportunities can be so interesting. This painting had so much to work with, elements from the original that work so well with the new design. Is it luck - or was this bunny just waiting for me to find him?
SIDEBAR COMMENT: I had this painting in a local show and one of the viewers was surprised when I told her I had drawn the bunny, she thought it was a collaged picture from a magazine! On one hand - a compliment - on the other, if my audience thinks it is collaged found paper, does that decrease the value of the painting? That bunny is my own colored pencil drawing, made into an acrylic medium transfer - a lot of work there!!
