Flora's background grows

"Flora Abstract"
(work in progress) 

12"x12" acrylic on canvas

Tonight was Thursday Art Night at the Eltrym and the film was "Third Ward TX". If you have a chance to see this film, do. Buy it, rent it, share it with everyone you know. It is an excellent film about the power of a community, and the power of art in all our lives.

Now to this painting. The other day I masked off areas and brushed a very liquid yellow onto it. I like what the paint did, but it moved in a way I didn't expect. Most of it went under the painters tape, so instead of having crisp lines, I have these odd organic shapes. Which work better than the crisp lines would have. A fact I would have realized to late, had it turned out the way I intended.

Now, to do more with it. Do what. Don't ask me, ask the paint.
