file_000-21Day 3 of the #30paintingsin30days challenge. I had some fun working with the poured paint medium and again played with the Mets colors. My aim was to go wild and let go!

 

5, 4, 3, 2, 1…Happy New Year!

I want to take the time to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year. I do hope that 2017 will be fulfilling. Take risks, learn from mistakes, be kind, stay present, breathe, laugh more, question authority (much needed this year), get out of my comfort zone, turn off electronic devices, accept myself, and allow more space for getting organized. These are my intentions for the coming year.

This January, I am planning on participating in the 30 in 30 project. (30 paintings in 30 days). I hope that it will kick off my art into the new year (and I will be using my above mentioned intentions often!)

This piece is part of my experimenting with poured paint medium. I opted to use colors inspired by the New York Mets – my favorite baseball team. Hoping this year will be a good one for them too!

It’s pouring….paint

On Monday, I had the opportunity to take an intro to Pouring Paint class led by Linda Ryan. It was fun and messy! There’s a lot of relinquishing control when doing this technique. I also learned that there are many variables that you have to consider when doing the pouring paint technique: opacity, gravity, how and if the paint sediment settles and how the color changes when it dries, just to name a few.

These are my first attempts. I am looking forward to seeing how they look when they are dry. I hope to do more – explore other color combos. Maybe I will try to do them in the 30 in 30 challenge. Yay! Another reason to buy more art supplies!
