Many artists have canvases and boards from unsuccessful paintings.   I keep most of them and think of the old painting as a good background - as if I intended the new one to have a colorful background.    This painting started life as a floral.    This little girl inspired me much more than the flowers, so I thought you might like to see one of the ways I assemble a painting.  The only name I have for the approach is "painting by shape of the color".       I see colors as having specific if unusual shapes - then I stack them up like puzzle pieces.
And yes,  she needs those knock knees fixed before its finished.
