My First Art Page

I like art and I like that it doesn't matter my level of skill as long as I keep at it. That is why I started making art pages even though I wasn't very good at it. Now, I've decided to share. It's not because my skills are suddenly stupendous and I can wow an audience with everything I imagine but because I really want to share. So, this is the first page I made:

I like that my initial idea was pretty sound but the execution was lacking. A gesso base with water colour on top was great but I discovered (by accident) that nothing really goes on top of oil pastel even though it gives a wonderful textured finish. I had to scrub it off in places I wanted the words to stick but it wasn't as good as I had hoped anyway.

The haiku was written as part of the years 100 Haiku Challenge while the blurry lyrics are from a song by Celine Dion. I'd have to say it wasn't too bad…for a first attempt.
