After a recent collaboration of two artist bloggers, Sharon at Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Jodi at Life in Between, who both painted Jodi’s photo of her Mother’s Day lilies, Sharon chatted to me that it would be fun if we both did some abstract art. I am always up for that (of course!), so I asked Sharon to pick the colors, and we both went for it with the lovely hues of pink, green and purple.
This was done on 6×6″ acrylic canvas paper by Strathmore, which is a heavy paper textured with a canvas pattern. (I am now a Blick affiliate, and your purchases from this link may result in commission to help support my site.) I really enjoy the surface, but I found this quite a challenge! I love all three colors, but had an easy time making mud with them too, and so this painting was quite a little journey. It took quite a few tries with many mediums. I first tried Tombow markers, thinking of Sharon’s lovely way with them, then moved on to Neocolor crayons and finally wound up with this little acrylic piece. I was thinking of something a little brighter and cheerier, but heck, it’s Friday, so we’re all in good cheer anyhow, huh?
I hope we are all dancing our way into the weekend today! Take care of each other. Hug, rinse and repeat. 😀 Peace.
