One of my goals this Fall is to challenge myself artistically. To try something...anything...new. Amazingly, I got right to it, at least in a small way. I wanted to reach beyond my 4x4 world, so I bought 8x10 canvas panels, new paint colors and stamps, and set to work (or is it really play?) I decided to start with paint and then add paper, rather than the reverse. This is a small change, I know, but it changed the whole process for me and hey, it was fun! Having a space more than twice as large to work on was also fun, but a challenge in itself as there was more space to fill. I hope to have this piece listed on Ebay tonight...we'll see if it draws any attention. (Interestingly enough, when I list pieces larger than my standard 4x4, they do not draw much interest. Don't know why that is?) Anyway, if you feel so inclined, I would love to know what you think of my first step 'out of the box.'
