I thought you might get a kick out of this mess! This is a little 3 x 5 canvas. It has so many layers on it. At one time, there was wire poked through it with beads stuck on the wire, you can see some gold foil pieces where I was checking out that. The blue shape just above the foil is painted paper, there is a thin layer of paper that was stuck down on it and then ripped off. The pale turquoise paint which is running is a Golden glaze. There is graphite, charcoal, marker and all kinds of things on here I can't even remember. I just use this little canvas to see how something might look, how the best way is to lay it down, how one thing will react to another and stuff like that! There is no planning, no creativity, no anything to this. But I always think it is interesting to look at...and I have no idea why. Oh, I also have lots of paper with lots of paint hanging out on it. I will have to show you that sometime. Do you think I have really gone off now and lost my brain? You may be right....
Do you have anything like this you have around that has no real meaning, never meant to have meaning, which you continue to use and are not willing to let go?
