Flower Bomb - abstract art

Today I sat down and started painting. (You might have seen some of the process on Instagram).
And if it looks like I'm painting on a desk with no newspaper or anything to keep the desk and keyboard clean......... you would be correct.
What can I say, I'm a spontaneous-creativity type of person.
When a girl's gotta paint, she's gotta paint.

It was one of those happy accidents (I didn't start out intending to paint anything in particular, I was just experimenting with my new paints I suppose) and while I have absolutely no idea if it would appeal to the average Joe (it looks a bit childish in the pic above when you can't see the texture), the colours make me giddy and the texture of the paint is so thick I want to dive right in. I have popped it on the easel to dry (ironic) and in my opinion it looks kind of amazing with the geometric rug and pillows in our living room - sweet deal. Next time I'll try a black or dark background.


Oh, and if you are wondering about whether anything more has happened to our office project... well it kinda has, but to be honest I'm still waiting an inspired moment of enlightenment to hit me for how to make it awesome.
I had a mini-gallery-wall at the ready, but  literally anything on the walls seems to only make this tiny office feel tinier. So I shall keep thinking and let you know!

Have you done any painting lately? What style was it?

  4. I love this painting! I agree with Chelsea that the texture is amazing. I haven't been painting lately because I'm so busy with school. I miss it though!
