Reusing Canvas

Over the years I have given myself permission to reuse old canvas painting that I myself have painted. I find it therapeutic to move forward in my work, learning from the old to create something new.  No one but me knows the developmental stages that my painting has gone through, it's my secret.  

It's akin to growing older, you have many experience that you don't share with everyone.  I find this process of letting go of the past challenging sometimes, but ultimately very rewarding in the end.  

This piece I did probable painted 12 years ago, and feel it really needs so help.

Today update looks like this, 

Now I have to let it dry overnight, while I consulate with my muse regarding the next step.  Creativity is just so much fun!

Living in Missouri

It's been a huge change moving to O'Fallon, Missouri for me.  The one constant in my life has been my artwork.  With Randy at work and Sarah off at school, I have hours alone.
No luck finding employment so I'm busying making work for myself.

The good new is I'll be teaching this fall, and will share that information later.  Here's a glimpse of some of my work.

More pictures to come,  please leave a comment.
