When paintings go bad


I have worked on this 12 x 12 panel for 6 months. It had glass beads and modeling paste it was red, it was black then it was bronze and white. It had cloth glued to it, then a rear turn signal from a truck. It couldn't settle down. But I wasn't going to give up on it. I even moved it to the new house.
Yesterday it got coated in plaster of paris. Now to decide on the next attack on it.

It's friend, who happens to be a stick, got plastered also.
Evidently the two of them had a very late night.

  1. I tend to sand through all the layers when paintings add up but don't settle down.
