i want to tell you a little story about an abandoned canvas.
this 30" x 40" birdcage canvas began its journey almost 2 years ago, i painted the background phthalo turquoise and painstakingly painted on the birdcages. when i finished painting the birdcages the moment was gone. i figured one day i would come back to it "inspired" and finish it.
the canvas has since been sitting in my studio classroom unfinished for 2 years.
this photo was taken this past weekend (thanks mary!) see the canvas in the background...
well i took it home after inspired and knew this week was the week to make something of them birdcages.
i had no idea it would "turn" out so different than it had originally started!
i hated it! so i thought maybe ditch the idea of birdcages and flip the canvas upside down and make them flowers.
i covered up most of the birdcage flourishes and added some whimsical stems
i love her (yes it is a she) now i just need to hang her...in the livingroom perhaps?
