"It's Improv, Man!"

I'm putting the Mary Todd Beam book aside for a day to post this little creation.  While mixing acrylic inks this afternoon for a demo pour I am doing Tuesday night, I was cleaning my brushes on a scrap of watercolor paper.  I began to really like what was happening and continued to develop it into an abstract painting.  The size is 4" x 10" and is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.  I guess you can tell what colors the pour will be on Tuesday night!

Be careful, you're going to fall in love with abstracts like I did!
It looks great!

Barb! I see blue people at a circus! Isn't it fun when your mixing palette or your brush-cleaning paper becomes a painting? Sometimes I like the designs on my mixing palette better than the painting...Susan

Katherine...that could be a possibility! Thanks!

AutumnLeaves...scary, isn't it? ;-)
Especially coming from me! Teehee.

Susan...painting is certainly a 'trip', isn't it! We are so lucky to have this in our lives!!!
Hope you are recovering quickly!

Hi Barb, I see more artists trying their hand at abstracts , and me being such a general pain in the backside for detailed work, now all of a sudden I find myself thinking / Hey! maybe!!! Yours looks great.. do some more.
