i never realized how much my surroundings affect my mood.
i now know that living in a mess gives me major anxiety.
my studio is a disaster.
between the everyday mess from working and then the mess from the flood, my studio isn't an inspiring place to work these days.
but, yesterday i started on a giant canvas i had laying around.
in one of my articles i wrote for Somerset Studios, i mentioned that i had a big bag of raffle tickets i was planning on using for something.
this is what i did!
i covered the entire canvas in tickets.
i painted it black and drew in my angel.
i was happy until i added the hair.
i used sewing pattern tissue and i'm not sure about it.
I want to do giant wings made from vintage paper from an old hymnal so i need contrast but something about it isn't working for me.
i think i need to just finish it and then take another look at the hair.
maybe it will look different.
i'm off to take my morning walk.
enjoy your day!!!
