The Messenger

Another older painting, and my all time favorite.  There is so much texture in the background, which I just love. 

I was taking a course with Wendy Welch (http://www.vancouverislandschoolart.com/), and she had us put an assortment of imagery onto our backgrounds, using matte medium.  Unbeknownst to us, the next step was to paint over most of the imagery!  It was a good lesson in not becoming too attached to a specific part of a painting so that, if something goes awry in a particular area, you simply paint over it and move on.
