i have recently learned.....well, i keep learning over and over that it isn't worth it to try and save certain elements of a painting during the process. i tend to work around those areas sometimes and it just doesn't work. the painting as a whole should be left open for possibilities, even the "good parts". the top piece is a 48x48 i started. bottom is 24x24 (you can see previous stages below).

It's here! I recently did an art trade with a friend of mine for this awesome Goliath Beetle made out of layered felt. The pink and orange are actually brighter than what the image suggests. This is just one of her many mediums she works in. I traded her for a Kingfisher bird (see earlier posting). The beetle measures 9x12. It's great having awesome artists as friends.
