On a recent evening out with friends, we passed a little ‘hole-in-the-wall’ diner in the Bloomfield section of Pittsburgh that had a sign above it saying, “The earth without art is just ‘eh’.” It caught our attention, and it has been in my mind ever since.
This crazy acrylic painting evolved over the course of several days. While far from fine art, it was a fun, creative experiment.
It started out being blue and brown and white to match a recent bedroom redo.
The next day it became an ocean and sky scene… then back to an abstract the following day with drips of gold.
Around the fourth day, I decided it needed some red. The red was too bold, so I added white to tone it down and “pink” it up a bit.
And on and on it went until I splattered white and tar gel with a toothbrush on and decided it was time to quit.
It has all kinds of crazy things going on over many layers, but there is something about it in the end that I kinda like.
Maybe because it reminds me that….
the earth without art is just “eh!”
Cheers & Hugs,
