Addison Paige #29 Just One Last Go At It
#29 24" x 30" x 1 1/2" Acrylic, ink and charcoal on canvas. 2013
This is another one of those paintings that has been so many different unsuccessful paintings, I almost gave up on it several times and at one point I was ready to just throw the canvas away instead of even bothering to gessoing over it and start again from scratch. In the end I attacked it with a color combination that worked well in another painting and it worked beautifully as a final layer on top with lots of beautiful little areas of previous layers showing through. How does a piece go from being almost hopeless to being one of my favorites?
I have continued the painting over the edge of the gallery wrapped canvas so that this painting does not require framing.
