crazy acrylic painting, “splurt”

i love this painting but it almost went into the trash. actually it’s on canvas, so i probably would have painted over it. i painted on it more and started liking it better.

if you can tell, there’s sort of a purple flower on the middle left. i was focusing on that and there was more and more purple til i got really frustrated. i wasn’t sure what to do. . i lay on more and more paint on a area i want to accentuate. but like with the flower, i put on so much paint it turns out very dark and a bit bloby. in this case i tried to brighten up the areas around the purple “flower”. that was good, but not good enough.

i took an almost empty tube of pale pink and squeezed the tube over the flower. i didn’t know what i was going to do. other than mix some colors on the canvas. but the tube was emptier than i thought. it splurted all over, but in a very thin way. it looked cool. there was a little paint left, so i squeezed the tube above  the canvas and squirted it all over, being careful not to obscure the whole painting.  flower problem solved and i think the painting looks all crazy and wild and pretty cool!
