3 fuzzy monsters painting
I've been working on this new painting forever it seems like. I get stuck with it so I put it aside & then pick it back up again. This has been going on for weeks now. I think it's really cute but trying to get the monsters fuzzy looking was really kicking my butt!
I woke up this morning feeling very determined to have it finished today! So I sat down & started painting. About 5 minutes into it I bumped it totally off my desk. Of course it had to land on a big heavy scrapbook I had leaning next to my desk on the floor. It hit the corner of it & punched a nice hole right through it. I couldn't believe it! Are you frickin kidding me or what?!?!?! After a couple hours of frustration & freaking out I pulled out a scrap of canvas & my gel medium & patched it from the back. I let it dry & filled in the seam on the front with paint. I just went over that spot really well with the paint & blended it all in. You can even see it now! I can't believe it! I was ready to rip it off the frame & maybe sew it into a bag. I'm glad I didn't start shredding it because the patch worked really well. I finished it all up & now I can go to bed tonite feeling like I really accomplished something big today :)
The three monsters painting is now available so let me know if you are interested. I'm accepting offers so just let me know what you think. The painting measures 18x24 on stretched canvas. the sides are staple free and painted black.
