Happy Mistakes..

I have always been a perfectionist. But ever since I found GESSO, my life changed. There is nothing GESSO can’t fix:) Here is an example and a good reminder to not be afraid to make mistakes. I was painting this girl last night with watercolor, going crazy with different colors in her hair. But it just did not look good. I hated. But I just could not fix it. Was about to throw it away in frustration and I thought, what the heck, let’s put some gesso over it. And then I thought, why stop there? Let’s put some acrylic paint all over it, covering the hair which I hated, leaving the parts I liked. Then came stencils and spray inks, lots of messy fun and I liked what turned up… So, don’t be afraid to make mistakes and keep going, you never know what / who will turn up:) Happy Monday!
