After many hours of frustration and layers of paint, I am finally done with one of the repurposed canvases from the previous post.
I brought this home and after a few hours of living with it, I decided that I didn't like it after all. I took the canvas off the frame and cut it apart. Now I am happy.
This is a 10 x 10 and it comes from the lower right section but now it is upside down from the original. Keeping in the same vein, I cut an 8 x 8 piece out of the upper right and turned it on its side. I thought it has a landscape feel.
And finally I cut a 5 x 7 and brought out some shapes that looked like a boat which is a very popular theme around here.
In doing this, I learned a few things
1. It is really hard to use a repurposed canvas from some one else.
2. My new favorite color is zinc white.
3. Abstracts look better as a square.
4. It is ok to cut a canvas apart and stick it in a frame.
