Leftovers, Black and Blue on Metallic – Acrylic on Mixed Media Paper, 5/4/21


As I am wont to do, I was using up leftover paint from 1st Post-COVID Dance and this is the result.

I see a couple of faces and, oddly enough, so do the people who have seen the painting up close.  One person pointed out to me that one face I can see is actually so much more complete than I thought.  Another person sees a tribal mask.

This is what I like about abstract; also what I like about using up paint leftover from the day’s project.  I never know what I’m going to get.  I love the freedom of trusting the paint, the brushes or other tools, and the random strokes to find their own picture.

Ah, the freedom of letting go!
