A Long Dance Ends with the Appearance of an Elephant

Many moons ago, I began dancing with a canvas.  At first, it was a perceived failure...

I did not give up on my canvas friend.  It has morphed many times.  It held a cosmos...

And then a strange girl appeared.  She did not move me.

After a generous application of cleansing gesso and enthusiastic paint play...

It has become this:

The waltz between artist and canvas is complete. 


  1. Oh... oh my goodness. This is one of the most beautiful artworks I've ever seen. I'm seriously speechless. Will there be prints available?

    God. Seriously. STUNNING.

  2. Wow! Love this. I can't wait to show my daughter!

  3. I love this post and the fact you pushed through to such a phenomenal end page. The elephant is just divine! I hope you are well and have a very blessed and artful summer! xo

  4. It's wonderful - a magnificent piece! It is also really interesting to see all the transitions it has been through.

  5. Stunning work and commentary. I am so glad to see that another artist doesn't want to make art only with other's designs. I am even more inspired to create my own stamps. Thank you!
