How to Destroy (and Recover) a Painting in 10 (or so) Not-So-Easy Steps

“Mollycoddling the Collywobbles” | Oil on canvas | 18″ x 18″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn - This painting started out very differently than it ended up. In a month full of daily interruptions (far more then the usual tolerable level of daily interruptions), I had a hard time keeping the same frame of mind while I worked sporadically on this canvas.

Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first.

— Arthur Schopenhauer
