Those Piles of Old Paintings
I have what my son calls "lots of inventory". Sometimes I look through it for ideas and to evaluate what went wrong, what worked. I did a half sheet watercolor of pink poppies years ago and it was nice but not too exciting. As I looked at it I thought the three poppies near the top would look nice framed by themselves. I cut them right out of the picture and darkened the sky around them. I think they will make an attractive note card and a nice 8X10 piece. Perhaps I can try a Myrna Wacknov experiment with the rest of the painting, a little gesso, a little collage and who knows? It may turn out good or it may just be a fun exercise.
