I remember hearing of someone who painted 27 times on one piece of Wallis paper by washing the pastel off and starting again. I certainly hope I can become content with this piece of Wallis long before that number.
This painting was originally posted 1/23/09 both as the foundation and finished painting, "Winter Riverwalk." Since then, it has been sitting in my studio, bugging me. About a month ago I washed it off and today I began again. As in my post of 1/26/08, I turned it upside down for a fresh start. For now, I'm OK with this one. We'll see how long it lasts. See the upside down foundation below. This time I'm calling it "Charmed."
