How to think outside the box when approaching a mixed media art piece

What is mixed media? Where do I find my inspiration? How did all the layers of tape happen?

I stretched a 36×40 canvas and stared at its blank white surface for over a year. I had the vision of an abstracted antique airplane for my son’s room.

I took out some reference books from my local library and dug up some of my husbands’ old airplane books but that wasn’t enough. Researching, learning and building a story is what’s great about the process of art. While doing my research, I was really drawn to the vintage looking green, navy, and copper colors of the old propeller planes. It wasn’t until a visit to a local antique store that I really started to see my vision come to life.
