You see that picture? That horrendous 36" x 48" canvas filled with dreary viney things was supposed to be a "BEFORE" shot of a super, awesome, incredible, amazing, upcycled art project. Instead, the "before" photo is the best thing about the whole mess of a what-was-I-thinking moment.
I am not going to bore you with the pitiful "AFTER" photos. I've burned them. Let me just say, though, that at some point in the process of carrying out this insanity, I encountered various cleaning fluids, two gigantic garden urns, a ripped-to-shreds drop cloth, spilled gasoline, and some substance that still has me smelling like death.
Despite the disastrous results, I am still in love with my idea and am not giving up on it. I am rethinking the design and will start again -- maybe even this afternoon.
Wish me luck!
