May Day 2019

Not the best photo as the art is square, 10 x 10 inches, and not the best art by any means. Technically, it’s flawed. And, I totally missed the mark. My intention was a controlled pour with a rainbow of colors… blues and white in the “sky” region, greens in the foreground, and a splash of vivid floral colors in the mid-zone for an abstract field, a wild flowers effect. I ended up with this chaotic mess.

Oh May Day, may day… what does one expect when paints sit idle too long?

This was my first Art for Breakfast since I started prioritizing my daily activities by heading into the studio with my first cup of coffee on at least one day a week. I was going to put the photo with my last post, but rambled on too long… not everyone wants to read all that.

As messed up as it is, I still like it. Maybe because life is chaotic at times or everything looks perfect on the outside but inside, you feel like this.

UPDATE: Replaced photo after signing and wiring for hanging. The painting goes over and down the 3/4 inch sides, so there was no need for framing.

Here’s what it looks like on a blue wall.

Yes, it is square, 10 x 10 inches… the half blind photographer is slightly askew. I take a zillion photos (or at least a dozen) and sometimes, I cannot tell if the image is slightly blurry or if it’s just my vision.

Here’s how I finished the back… tidy up a bit with black paint and wall protector dots on corners. Yes, those are my fingerprints from holding it up like a waiter’s serving tray, turning it this way and that while checking my edges. Maybe someday I won’t be so messy.

There’s a nail and hook in the little baggie hanging on the wire, just an extra touch in case anyone is ever interested in buying it.

Thanks for looking!
