It might be hard to see, but if you look at the top left corner of the painting, you can see the tear in the canvas. That’s the way it arrived in my Blick order, damaged goods.
I could have thrown it out and demanded a refund, but that’s not my style, I use, reuse and recycle everything. So I painted on it anyway.
Then, I highlighted the flaw by using my very rusty sewing skills, rough stitching in a dramatic fashion, and you know what? It was really fun! I want to do more stitching on canvas, maybe like embroider something, all of the possibilities have me feeling kinda giddy!
I’m now completely out of new canvases. I’m okay with that, there are piles of not finished paintings I can pick through and play, surely I will have something new and fabulous to share soon! Stay creative my friends!😉🎨
