red. 5.5"x8.5" mixed media on a re-purposed book cover
Lately I have been noticing a lot of paintings being created from abstract backgrounds. When I saw NatashaMay's video for the Butterfly Effect, it was the final push I needed to play with some paint, have some fun, and see where my background led me...
Look What I Found!
I started out with the cover from a recycled hardbound book, collaged some pages for texture, then splashed some red (and gold) paint on it.
It was so much fun... I can't believe I didn't paint this way sooner! (Especially since I seem to "see things" everywhere - like here, or here, or even here!)
I have a feeling I will be doing a lot more of this type of painting in the future!
