Finished piece! It only took 3 weeks but it felt longer. I have a large wall in my master bath that needed a large piece to look right on. So what better why than to throw a little paint. You'll have to come visit my bathroom to get the full colors and texture effect. There are some metallic colors and even some glitter colors. The largest canvas is 28 x 21 and the smallest is 5x7.

Close up of finished project.

How it all started.

Night one. It got too dark to throw paint any longer and the mosquitos were eating me up!

Close up.

Things got a little drippy as I was transporting these in the dark to my garage. Never mistakes. Only happy little trees.

Couple of more close ups.

The Feelings of Summer
Mixed Media
(acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil)
What can be done with paint throwing? Well the possibilities are endless. As I was doing my first shot at throwing paint I started tearing off the plastic on this canvas.  Only part of it tore off.  I thought "what if I threw paint at this with plastic on it then tore off the plastic." With the colors laying at my feet I started throwing.  These colors reminded me of this picture I took a few years ago. The colors match my daughters shirt and the happy feeling of the first bike ride of the summer. Even the dog was smiling! One problem. I don't do landscapes and never have worked on canvas. I don't paint.  I use colored pencils or graphite. Is it possible to use colored pencils and watercolors on a canvas? The answer is yes! One more stroke of luck...there's a show at called Spoke & Art that is bike themed and everything falls into place!
