At the Circus was my first venture into a larger format canvas (12×16), and I liked having more room to play. So I started another large canvas, and planned to paint an oversized girl’s face with some kind of funky hair. I had it mostly done, but I couldn’t get the hair right. I put it away for a few days, and ended up painting over most of the whole thing. My big girl face morphed into a garden full of fairies! I do love that mistakes can be covered up and undone. It just makes more layers, and in this kind of collage style art, the more layers the better!
