Ok - so I kept seeing a bird in my shapes - and did some more work last night. Basically I just blocked out the shapes I wanted to keep and painted the background. I love doing this - it's so hard to see what will come of it - so I just keep painting and will also stencil, stamp and collage. I must admit I did want a horizontal view - I really need something that's a good size over my couch in the living room. We'll see how it goes! Once I get started - it's really exciting to keep going. Thanks for stopping by - leave a comment if you have a thought about this process.
