Painting 3

Painting #3. Embarrassing is all I can say. After completing the first assignment somewhat successfully, I was ready to paint my masterpiece. Our assignment was to find an image, crop it down until it was virtually unrecognizable and paint it in one sitting. I found a photo of a flower and while the photo was very appealing, this painting just fell flat. It's just weird on so many levels and not the least bit interesting even as an abstract. It's a large painting, probably 20 x 30 or so and it was done on a canvas board, not a stretched canvas.I now use these painting mainly as a cutting board when I use my xacto knife, the reverse side though. No masterpiece, not even close!
