purple mixed media heart on canvas

i made this purple mixed media heart this past weekend. it is a 4"x4" canvas. i find that the more textures and layers that are down, the better i like the painting.i had played and painted many layers....putting the paint down and maybe taking some back off; layering of tape and paper dots too. i had played between using a painted paper heart and glueing that on, versus just drawing on the canvas. i ended up liking the drawn heart better and i found i could manipulate the heart easier to get the colors i wanted. the paper heart was too easily lost on the here is my heart for you!

  1. I love, love, love this piece! It rocks! I am finding that I too like a piece better if I put lots of texture and layers down. It addsmore interest.
