creative play, messy art

i've been wanting to do an abstract painting for my room for some time now

creative play in progress 01

inspired by alisa burke,
out came my supplies and the messy art began

it was difficult trying to get an accurate photo so you will just have to trust me when i say that it looks much better in reality

simple, messy but effective

it felt so good to be painting again and i'm already planning the next one....

  7. Now if I did that, it would look like a mess, but when you do it, looks great. I love Alisa's work. No wonder you are inspired by her. She is one talented gal. But then again, so are you! Have a terrific Tuesday! Tammy

  10. Oh wow Serena that has turned out fantastic. It goes perfectly with your room. It looks so fresh and uplifting, just in time for summer.
    Whenever I have tried an abstract it turned out so controlled, now I have done some art journaling I think it is time to try it again, it looks like so much fun
