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.
