Ok… here’s the real deal:
I was painting and using a piece of paper towel to dab excess paint and ink from the rice paper paintings I did earlier in the week. When I went to throw away the paper towel, I saw so much color and the vibrancy of this scrap just screamed at me… screamed so loudly that I couldn’t toss this… just couldn’t do it. So I tore the sheet in half and made two small paintings that I’ll probably use as backgrounds for collage later on.

This is a mixed media painting made with watercolor, metallic inks, and acrylic on paper towel.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    So, I’m Glad you saw the potential in the ole’ paper towel! It has been said: ‘There are no accidents’; this…would illustrate That ‘saw.’ I…see in the lower blue, a figure that is having some ‘Hot Fun’….and then another one in red/magenta up higher, with its legs out between the bands of blue & black….OR….what Ever ….

  • Ok, cool! I see what you see! What a team we be! I know that is improper grammar, I was going for the rhyme. Ha! So glad you see the value in keeping this colorful paper towel! :)
