Remember Me, Original Mixed Media Art 20x20"
One philosophy that I teach my painting students (and live my life by) is that nothing is ever wasted.
Take this painting as an example. It has many layers - one of which was ANOTHER painting. That is a secret that many of paintings share. They may have started off as a different painting. But this one, like many others, still retain fragments of the former painting.
If you look carefully, you might notice what appears to be a brick pattern on the top… This is actually an African necklace. The painting was a less successful painting from my African mask series. I turned the painting upside down to paint this elephant on top.
Another remnant from the former painting is in the top left corner. If you look carefully you will see an abstract pattern. I actually borrowed that pattern from a Picasso Painting of his mistress.
All these underneath layers become part of the fabric of the finished painting.
I think the same is true in life. We have all these experiences and we wonder how that might fit in or be used in the future.
But I’ve found that nothing is wasted.
By the way, according to Feng Shui experts- elephants bring prosperity to your home. That’s why I recommend hanging one in your foyer.
Where would you imagine this elephant painting in your home?
