Scanning my latest U-tube treasures,"Arttradermagazine"caught my eye. Using scraps from my table..Yes!!Brilliant!! I can create and clean up at the same time..How wonderful is that!! Check out her great tutorial!!
And so I began.Starting with a premade 6"x 6" canvas covered in Gesso.
I then glued all kinds of table scraps on to the canvas..
Once it dried I began to paint...and paint..and paint..I just couldn't seem to pick a color I was happy with..so I ended up with spray painting the base black..
..and after careful consideration,I choose this beautiful acrylic metallic copper as the top layer..and when I painted it...something happened..something wonderful..my vision took a turn and the Michael Demeng inside me started to scream..His awesome use of unwanted treasures provoke every nerve ending in my being and so inspired by his work, I attempted to make my very own M.D inspired piece.
Now I don't know about you,but for me..something happens when the breeze grazes my shoulder,or when my fingers slide underneath the soil,or when my face feels the cool and fresh water of the ocean..Something happens..unexplainable yet real.As it does when I reach for the perfect pieces to finish my canvas.Perhaps it is a whisper of gratitude,..a knowing of grace,..whatever it is.. it also happens when that perfect trinket touches my fingers...and there is nothing but clarity.
