I started this piece thinking about a black and white challenge. I have several layer of black craft paint and gesso on it. I wanted more texture so just for fun, I smashed a sizzix texture plate into the wet gesso. When I pulled the plate off, layers of paint came with it. I was expecting a texture pressed into it and instead I got this wonderful texture from the plate removing paint. It feels bumpy and uneven and I love it.
The black and white just weren't doing it for me. My heart is a little tender and it was screaming in my head..."too many changes." That hot pink paint screams off the page just like the words were doing in my head. I am finding that I'm putting my feelings into my art work more and more often these day. That's a positive change.
I saw this quote on facebook today: It's how I feel today.
