This is a little fun piece. When I began playing with acrylic a few weeks ago I was once again practicing colour mixing by making swatches of colour. (I can’t believe how many fun and creative works I’ve done that began as simple colour swatches. I think it is because when I’m doing colour swatches I’m only concerned with the colour and my actual brush stroke is completely spontaneous. Then when I look at the shape of the swatch I start to see all sorts of possibilities in the shape.) Anyway, this was some acrylic colours splashed on a paper. My wife, Susan, as she often does takes these little practices or knock offs and goes over them with marker. Many of them are brought to a new life by her application of ink. This was one that she turned into a real work of art with a story of it’s own.
