I am over the purse thing. After helping some of the girls with purses, figuring out my own design, and all the chaos that goes with a room full of purse painters…….I’m over it!
I painted two purses….one to small for me to use, a little leather travel bag I purchased on Cedros St. years ago to travel with. Turns out, it’s so small it won’t hold my sunglasses, or much of my wallet. So of course, I had to paint it.
The other a canvas travel bag that should eliminate my wallet, but hold my sunglasses. The thing is, I got over it before I finished, and that is not good! When that happens, I start making mistakes, and mistakes I made. Dripping paint where is shouldn’t have been. Smearing from the side of my hand, things like that. So I did exactly the same thing I’d do in a painting. There are no mistakes, only opportunities to be creative! Well, I don’t know about that. In this case I’m not so sure that worked. Line work was used to pull it together and poka-dots were used to cover other opportunities.
All in all…..
I meant to do that!
