I found myself re-organizing my artwork because it was once again beginning to take over my house. In the process I found a short stack of old pieces that I liked but really didnt represent my style at this point. So -- what to do, what to do.... Hmmmm.
I got a wild hair and decided, what the heck, if they're just going to sit in a closet I might as well try re working them and see what they would look like in the manner I paint today! Kind of risky. I could ruin them all together.
I couldnt remember my palette at the time so I had to experiment a little but once I got that figured out the rest was CAKE! :) And great fun!
So here is the first makeover. I am seriously recommending this to any artist out there with a closet of oldie, moldy but goldies. (Or am I the only one?) Yes, there is risk involved. It could go south. But it might not. And it is a terrific exercise in self critique and execution!
So, what are you waiting for?? :)
