My Life Is a Canvas

I showed a two page journal spread called Listen to the Crow recently, but there were a few things about the composition that bothered me. I loved the way the mandala in the bottom right had corner looked, but felt it competed too highly for attention. The whole piece needed simplifying, in my view, and so I took paint, pencil crayons, and pastel to it and ended up with this.

My life is a canvas, and I can choose to paint it differently as well.

One Response to My Life Is a Canvas

  1. I love this–I especially respond to whatever it is that allows us, even demands of us that we function WITH our art. My children are always tense when I look at a canvas or other work I’ve given them. They can see that look. I think this keeps us at one with our work–and keeps any individual piece from becoming too “precious.” I only have one canvas from 1974 that I’ve never gone back into. Or over, or wanted to!
