Re-cycling (old into new yet again!)




Current project is to re-use a painting I am not happy with and turn it into something else. Although I loved the subject of this one (my lovely youngest daughter with her baby son) I just could not get a good likeness of her face and it did not do her justice.

So out with the white gesso and she disappeared (sorry Mel), presenting me with a nice blank canvas. I had added texture prior to attempting the portrait and of course that still remains.

My current idea is to try a semi-abstract of poppies ... recent events, plus a centenary year of  WW1, is effecting my mind-set somewhat!

Whether or not this will turn out how I want is always another matter entirely!
