This piece started out as an acrylic painting--just acrylics. But it needed something...so I modified it A LOT. I added, fabric flowers, buttons, a fabric butterfly, a paper butterfly, a plastic bird, ink, paper, colored pencils and pen. Sometimes the "this isn't working, what can I add to this painting" is my favorite part. I open all my art drawers and see what I have and start placing things on the canvas to give them a try. FUN!
This painting is called "How Does your Garden Grow?".
