Well, since today is my 56th birthday, I decided to paint a bright and vibrant abstract as a means of personal celebration! :).
I have this rather unusual calendar that shows three months at a time… so when I changed all the sheets to welcome in the lovely month of MAY, I decided to gesso the old sheets and play a while! This piece is about half of the final painting (which will be used to make my 2012 flag books). “Painting makes me oh so happy… brings so much peace and positive energy to my existence… though I’m over 50 now, I can celebrate my butt off all year long from now on… all I have to do is create ART!” :)
P.S. Ok! I got it! The response to my day of play and celebration has me re-thinking cutting up this abstract into smaller pieces for books… Instead, I’m going to mount it on canvas or clay panel for display. Thank you so much for helping make my 2012 birthday so much FUN and filled with JOY! Love and hugs, Angela
This painting was made using three fluid and heavy body acrylics, Adirondack Color Wash, and ink on three different recycled calendar pages glued together.
For those interested in how I did this, here are a few WIPs to show the process:
