What A Surprise !!!

I had a painting that I really wasn't happy with and had set aside.  Took it out and ended up with this!  Trust me this is not even close to resembling what I painted over.  I like the result though.

Sometimes...just trusting yourself.... and returning to a previous brushstroke and canvas ...there can be true magic!!! I love this happy accident. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Sometimes I think that 'failed' paintings end up being the best substrates :) Nice job!!

To paraphrase my editor: a painting is not painted, it is re-painted. The tumbling effect here is wonderful!
