The object below is a rolled, used and rejected canvas.

I tend to work on things for prolonged periods, sometimes over years. Sometimes the project never comes to light and is rejected. This canvas was subjected to all kinds of treatment, including burning, but never reached a final point.

I'm choosing to show it here as an example of the rejection of the original concept – so – 'Some you show, some you throw away'. Perhaps more should be thrown away than shown.
