happy, happy, accident!
i had loaded this 14 x 14 canvas with paint. hated what was happening so i took a brayer and just mooshed it all together. i set it aside to dry so i could cover it with gesso and begin again. when i came back to gesso it i was surprised by this great melding of color and texture. i new right away that it needed a vintage photo in the middle. this is a photo of my mom and dad, and two of my sisters and one of my brothers.
i don't think i will ever be able to reproduce this or anything close to it, but i am gonna try the brayer mooshing thing again!
