week2 Get Your Paint On

Week 2 of GYPO was to create a painting inspired by an artist you admire. I chose Hundertwasser and used "Regentag on waves of love" as my springboard. His work is full of tiny bits of detail, mixed with pattern, texture and areas of flat color.

Get Your Paint On

week one of 'get your paint on'. an online painting class given by two artists, lisa congdon and mati mcdonough. the prompt this week is gee's bend quilts. i saw a downsized version of the original exhibit, still amazing, and have checked the book out of the library a thousand x.
but, when i painted my piece i looked at a book of amish quilts in the esprit collection, amish, the art of the quilt

my painting was a response to a palette used on one of the quilts and then everything else that is running around in my head took over!!!
