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.

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.

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

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!
