Don’t Pick the Flowers – mixed media painting

I’ll be honest…I never really know where I am going with any of my paintings.  I’m not sure how many artists will admit that, but this is what I love about abstract painting…you don’t need to know, you don’t need a plan. Don't Pick the Flowers

My base layers usually start with a vintage newspaper clipping, book pages or vintage fabric, as in this particular painting.  From there, I add layers of paints and sand down each layer only to add more paint, paper/fabric.  Once I think the painting is finished, I cover it up with more paint and use a power sander to reveal all of the layers.  I’m often surprised at the results.  Don’t Pick the Flowers is one of those ‘happy’ surprises.

Don’t Pick the Flowers is 24″ x 36″ and on gallery stretched canvas.  The canvas edges are a deep 1.5″ and painted black.  All canvas art is wired and ready for display, no framing required.
