And the clouds parted!!!

Once upon a time there was a piece of canvas calling out my name. I approached this canvas and began to attach many exciting things to the surface.
It is always exciting to start a new piece. You know you have begun an adventure and off I went. Over hills and through the valley's I traveled hoping to find the castle door at the end.
But alas, no door showed itself to me.
So in frustration, I covered the entire piece with gesso and went in a whole new direction. This was becoming quite an adventure indeed.
Adding gesso and cerulean blue changed how I felt about the piece. I removed some original areas and added new areas. I outlined all the pieces within the collage with charcoal and that really helped it to pop.
Here is the finished piece and I hope you enjoyed the journey!!
