This 36×40 inch painting started out as an example for a workshop I was going to teach. The class was cancelled (due to the fact that I am moving) and I decided to experiment and play on what was already there. I had so much fun and the process was very freeing. I incorporated water, paint, paint pens, water-soluble pencil, paper and even a little sparkle glue. The piece was inspired by art journals and graffiti. All sorts of positive messages were swirling around in my head so I incorporated those into the piece.
