What I am sharing today is a painting I did that taught me to never give up. I started the painting as 12 x9 as opposed to 9 x 12. I painted several trees and blotted on paint to add the spring buddings. It very fast turned into a hot mess. lol. Instead of throwing the canvas out, as I would have in the past, I decided to try to make lemonade out of lemons. I added with stamped pattern pieces, paper napkins, paint, and painted on a face. It is not my favorite painting, but it taught me to keep at it and see what can happen.
