I hope to never do a painting this complicated ever again! It gave me problems all the way through. To do the text, I used markers and found out that some of them were not permanent; so they bled when I wanted to paint around them - lots of re-doing parts of the canvass. BUT - I'm done.
The original idea was a drawer of things I have let go of from the past (at least to some degree). (example: light bulb = ideas that have gone by the wayside)
And yes, that is a real handle at the bottom of the canvass. It IS a drawer, after all.
