I decided to create in something other than paint today, so I took two reject paintings I had sitting in a sack and cut them in strips and wove them together. One of them was a pink waterlily and the other was a crystal bowl painted monochromatically in red. It gives a sort of nice complementary color contrast to the project with all the reds and greens. My high school students always liked to weave their watercolors and they produced some beautiful weavings - much better than this one I will have to admit! It was a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I cut both watercolors to 8" x 10" and both paintings were done on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper. This is a cool way to use rejected paintings!
