Or -- this little painting can be blobs of paint, an empty paint tube, and a textured background :-) The empty tube of paint is viridian green -- one of my favorite colors! There's also ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow, cerulean blue, and kings blue (all favorites). In case it hasn't been obvious... I seriously love painting. I recently took a workshop with David Shevlino, who said about the career of artist, "If you can do anything else at all, do it." I found out the hard way that the only thing I want to do is paint. I spent a lot of years trying to have a practical career (things I was good at), but painting is my obsession. There is no relegating it to hobby or saving it for retirement.
So that was more than enough words... here's the painting, "My supplies dwindling, I made a visit to Gerhard's studio to borrow paint and ideas"

Here's a video of Gerhard working in the manner used to create the "background" of my painting.
