Stripes of Another Color
This little painting turned out to be one of my favorite paintings. It started as what I call my throw away piece. I always keep a couple of canvases or paper in my studio to put leftover paint or mediums onto so I don't throw them down the sink. I continue to build up colors and textures until I have a beautiful background to complete my painting. The throw away piece becomes the masterpiece. I think these pieces work out so well because I am not so invested in their preciousness. Try it and see.
