In my quest for flowers and nature, I found a magnolia seed pod that was just beautiful to me.  I drew it and liked it even more.  So, I painted it with ink on top of an acrylic landscape.  It changed, changed a little more and completely changed by the end.  Given that, most people wouldn't know what it is the saying was very fitting. beyoutifulblog

The process was exciting at times, and terrifying at others, who knew a 6x6 canvas could be so scary!  The cool thing is that with acrylics and oils, you can always gesso over and start fresh... there were a couple times I thought about it.
