Oh gosh, I don't even know if I can remember all of the different stages this one canvas has gone through... I know it started life as a colour-matching project in college, and then it was something else, and then it was these magpies with an ugly sort of background, and it sat under my desk for several months.
I really really wanted to push some smooth acrylic paint around, so I sat and started covering the canvas again. I left most of the magpies because I still kind of liked them. I didn't take a photo of my first attempt, but it was super ugly, and then kind of pretty, and then super ugly again. But then I covered THAT with this pretty blue, and rubbed on some red circles with my fingertips. I don't know for sure, but maybe this is "the one???"
