Mixed Media Canvas- Find Meaning

This is another mixed-media canvas that I had done as a sample while teaching a mixed-media class.  For these canvases we take old paintings as a starting base and you can preserve some of the initial painting, use the colors for inspiration or just cover it up entirely.  It’s up to you what you decide to do with the old picture.
I generally tend not to use so many pinks and purples in my work, so I used the original colors as inspiration and I even left some of the actual painting peeking through circles around the piece.  For this canvas I used acrylic paints, stamps, scrapbook & book paper, along with some magazine cutouts to build up all of the layers.
