Beauty From Ashes

A couple of years ago I attended a painting class.  The teacher was wonderful but, for personal reasons, I was not in a good head space at all and the painting just caused me pain.  I primed over it but the canvas has just been sitting, waiting, for restoration.

So I have decided to use my leftover mixed oil paint from each painting I do and put it onto the canvas using a palette knife and see what come from that.  I have been putting these paint remnants in a jar or in a pile on my palette all mixed together.  So currently, I have mostly greens and greys and browns.

But just wait!  I will keep each mixed colour separate from now on and add it to this canvas.  I’m excited to see what it looks like in a few months!  Beauty can come from unexpected places.
