Breaking the Rules - Original Abstract Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

Breaking the Rules
Acrylic/mixed media on canvas

Whenever I have a painting that's been sitting around gathering dust, I usually just gesso over the painted canvas and start all over again. Layers of paint and built up medium add to the texture of the new painting and make it more interesting than if it were on an absolutely pristine canvas.  So, my advice, for what it's worth, is to not be afraid of painting over an old painting.  No sense having it sit in the corner not being of use to anyone, and who knows, the next one might be the masterpiece you've been waiting for.
