Here's another one

Passage 28
Acrylic, mixed media
Hi folks,
Here's another in the series. This is where I discovered the joy of covering a crummy area with a layer of decorative paper. Sometimes pieces just don't want to come together, they become a struggle. I set it aside while I work on other canvases, keep looking at it and ask it what it wants. Sometimes I get the silent treatment and sometimes it actually tells me - "see that paper over there? tear it up and start gluing" I'm always happier when it talks to me and tells me what to do. The end result is much better. The lesson is having the patience to listen and learning how to get out of my own way. In other words.......relax and have fun with it!
choose happiness,
