I am recycling my first attempts at truly painting from just 5 years ago.I smile when I think of how I've grown and improved. Instead of destroying or abandoning these original works, I thought they would make beautiful under paintings. I will blanket the old, with the new. Fresh images and pigment will conceal hidden stories.They will preserve the process of my return to painting.
I smile when I look at past work. It is painfully labored and self conscious, but always I created with passion and heart. I paint more aggressively now. I think and work with more confidence. I trust my own eyes . I have an abundance of painted canvas, waiting to be reworked and transformed. Change is due.
