The one about another background



This one is a huge 16" x 20". I like canvases big. I like art to be big. I won't buy small art, either. Of course this one has been started even though I never finished anything beyond the background on the last project. Maybe I should just stick to backgrounds, huh?
I used strips of different book papers with layers of gel medium, gesso, and watercolor crayons scrubbed into the edges and crevices, after I washed the color into the surface, let it pool and dry. fun! I do have more planned for this one still!

Thats beautiful! Backgrounds seem to be your thing. Maybe you can make them into papers and sell? *hint - hint* lol

I love it...can't wait to see what else you will do on it. I am trying my hand at this sort of layering on small pieces, but it is harder than it looks--so I totally appreciate how much work you put into this large piece
