Abstract Acrylic Painting, 36" x 48"
Available and inspired by my favorite TV show Fixer Uppe
I decided to try another painting using my new concept of incorporating house plans as collage for the first layer of a painting. I thought it might be fun to call it "Survived" which explains exactly how most of us feel after completing a remodeling project! You can see the palette knife strokes which have left some wonderful texture on the canvas.
I think the most important thing I leanred with this painting is ...
... that layering allows you to bring hidden meaning to a piece of art. I was down in our basement today and found the original blueprints to our house. They are very large and very old (as in 101 years) and I would love to use one of the pages in the roll for a painting. I just think this concept is really cool and has so much meaning for the homeowner. Especially in this case when the homeowner is me! I also think it would make a great gift from an architect, contractor or interior designer. Just email me if you are interested and want to talk more.
In the meantime I am off to plan my own painting with these awesome blueprints. And yes, they really are blue!
