heart string tree
this painting was a long journey .... and really, not all my paintings are ... sometimes i just make bunches of backgrounds, and as they speak to me, i finish them ...but this one .... i had a very different background than my usual .... it has a thick gesso back with letters printed into it ..... and ... when i started the foreground? it was tipped one clockwise rotation over .... so that there was a branch coming in the side of the canvas ..... but the branch was turning out more detailed than my branches normally do ...and then it started looking like a full on tree .....so i rotated it ... and then the nest that i had been planning on seemed too small ....so i switched plans all together ... so it goes .... a journey .....
20 by 20 square gallery wrapped canvas .....with thick gesso, letter imprints, turquoise paints, vintage papers, and a bit of joy
