|"El Pueblo" - 24" x 18" acrylic on 1.5" canvas|
One of the biggest problems I'm having with this challenge is with the old names of the pieces. Because these are all "do-overs," most of the canvases were already named. So trying to make a new piece work with the name sometimes doesn't work - like at all.
The old painting for this canvas was called "Decisions" and was a geometric work with numbers and letters sprayed on (yes, I went through that phase....). However, when I was painting this piece, the name "El Pueblo" came to me and my rule is once a name comes to me, I know it's time to stop painting.
I don't want to white out or gesso over the previous name, so will somehow blend the names (ie Decisions - El Pueblo). Maybe it will attract a buyer who can't decide which house to buy? Or someone inthe real estate industry? I'd be happy if it just attracted a buyer, period!!
Only 10 more days to go - and today I pulled some large canvases out of the shed in my backyard. Watch out, folks - things are going to get freaky now :-)
