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.

    God. Seriously. STUNNING.

  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!
