Project Description

I made this canvas and it actually hung on my wall all gessoed for a couple months while I thought about what I wanted to paint on it.  I knew I wanted it for our bedroom so I did not want it be all wild and I wanted it the color to match how I am doing our bedroom.  Such a long process.  One night I was in bed sleeping and dreamt to paint this.  When I got up the next day I started painting it.  It is painted completely with my knives.  While I was painting it I had no idea what kind of designs I was doing I just went with my own movement gliding my knives over my canvas.  When I was done I could not believe it was Hawaii.

If you look at each side you will see the palm trees, the middle has the island with water crashing up on the rocks.  The middle top has a couple dolphins jumping.  There is really a lot of Hawaii in here which is a pretty special place for my husband and I.  Every time I look at it I see many new things.  The gold is 24K Gold from, I think, Michael’s.  It is cheaper on Amazon though…
