Texture Grunge Flowers or…Where should I put all those Canvases?

Another Canvas…I can’t stop creating them…which is …well not bad perse…but seriously…LOL. where should I put them all….sigh….

This one is 12×16 inch – I had a wonderful time creating all the texture and those flowers.

It was one of those pieces which I loved in the beginning- having a picture in mind

and then started to HATE it…not kidding- painting it all over – disappointed I ruined with one step what I had liked so much

But now I love it even more…maybe because I had this fight…just like with everything in life, right? Things that come to easily to you, you do not really cherish, things you struggle to achieve are the dearest milestones in your life.

    Amazing!! Love the texture and the rich colour! I know exactly what you mean about one step can ruin it for you – I’ve totally been there and done that. I find it’s worse when I fall out of the groove, and work carelessly. When I’m in the groove it all flows, when I try to force it to happen, bad things happen!! Hope that makes sense lol 😉

  4. I have a free spot on my wall 😉 -just in case
    Why didn’t you like it?. It got me only with the textured background. Love it!

  5. Gorgeous canvas! Your love/hate post is certainly thought provoking…sometimes I just have to walk away to never return but thank goodness most times I return with a new set of eyes:) TFS!

  6. Wow! This may be one of my favorite of your pieces! Beautiful, Nat! Interesting thoughts about appreciating one’s own work more after a struggle; I want to spend some time today with that thought, for sure! I have a project that I am currently hating. There may be no resolution for now, though, because I am crossed-arms and not speaking to it. Lol!

  7. Love this Nat!!!! I am forever fighting with my projects!!! Sometimes I love the outcome, sometimes not. But I guess that’s how we learn to grow…lol
    Have a fun weekend!

  8. WOW!!! Love it 😉

  9. Excellent! Love, love, love this one!!!!
