30 in 30 days - Day 17 - Tube Flowers

Ok, I had so little time, and a 3x5 canvas left (only 1 left), I thought - do something quick & fun. So what if it isn't good, just be a school kid in art class again. (I loved art class as a kid - Mrs Rogers. When she walked into the room I always got happy!)

So here you go! Done with a knife (and fingers) and no palette! Squeeze the paint on the canvas and then make something of it. Of course I squeezed colors where I wanted them (hence the name, Tube Flowers), but the knife had to pull and slide the paint. Such fun. This will probably take a few years to dry - the paint is that thick in spots! Ok, not a few years, but I won't be touching it anytime soon. Sorry about the glare in the photo - seems those thick globs of paint reflect the light more so than a flat area of paint.

Done for the 30 in 30 challenge. Plan to do some "real" painting this weekend.

Oh boy! I just love this one, Nan! That green is exquisitely rich and the most lovely of backgrounds for the white flowers. No matter how you got there, you did and I love it!
