100 Canvases: Canvas #2

This is another canvas paint-over.  I like painting over old work.  It adds texture, is budget friendly, and answers my storage needs!

Rather appropriate, eh?

I continue to push myself to create arresting images rather than pretty ones.  I'm not totally satisfied with this canvas, but that's all just part of my evolution.

Thanks for stopping by!
