my art | rainbow stripes

as i was putting together the acrylic painting project for my "make art a part (of your life)" e-course, a technique i was writing about reminded me of a piece that i painted years ago. it now hangs in our front hallway but time and travel has warped it.* it may have to come down at some point but it took me three months to create so it will be difficult for me to remove it. there are seventy-two lines of colour, and not a single one of them is repeated. even if some of the colours are similar, i can promise you that they were mixed with entirely different colours of paint.

*what actually warped it was it's first life. my friend and i decide it would be fun to mix paint with water, fill balloons with the mixture and throw them at the canvas. unfortunately there was too much water and not enough paint so there was only a light layer of colour and i painted over the canvas a couple weeks later. the water likely warped it first.


  1. Nothing makes me happier than a parade of colors! I love it!

  2. Beautiful! I love stripes!
