OK, it was "nice" but blah… so I decided I'd just start over - I gessoed over the entire canvas and decided to paint a face over it… I got a nice under layer of color on once the gesso dried, and then thought that maybe I should remove some of the thicker areas of tissue paper before painting the face. But when I started to scrape away the tissue, I got a lovely surprise - a very interesting mixture of colors and the more I worked on it, the more I liked it. Ended up with a composition that works too. I love it! It has an Asian feel to me…

Acrylics and collage on canvas
Have a couple more canvases started to try this approach - working hard to get them ready for CenterFest. Then October is the month I need to work on some paintings for patient people waiting for commissions. Its going to take awhile to get caught up with those and galleries wanting new work. Its a nice problem to have - I'm not complaining!
