Idaho weekend

A long weekend in Hayden Lake, Idaho inspired me to have another look
at a background I had done on massa paper months ago.
I am only starting as you can see on the right, I will negative paint out the trees on the left
and have a great memory of our time with friends in Idaho.
I have another massa hiding under the bed and am thinking of retrieving it and maybe creating some geraniums in a pot...we'll see.

Another sample of my geometrics.  The yellow was the base color.

This base
became this.
I really am not happy with the results but maybe if I stash it under the bed, it will appeal more in 6 or 7 months.  Speaking of stashes, the collection of stencils I have made for various projects is growing to the point it could be a fire hazard.  I keep thinking I will reuse the stencil...NOT!!!
With many thanks to our Paint Party Friday hosts Kristin and Eva,  I wish you a Happy PPF!

Random Paint Dumps

Many of you are aware of the many backgrounds I create with different types of paint on yupo paper.
One of my favorites is just wetting the paper, dumping acrylic paint on it and letting the colors work together.  For me, that is the most enjoyable, just watching the colors mix and move.  If I don't get just what I want, I tilt things a bit.  So this is one of my random dumps where I didn't plan, didn't move, just let the paint play.  And from where I see it, I got a bouquet of roses.  What do you think?

I framed it and it now resides in my office.
Wishing you all a happy PPF and  for those in the U.S., a safe 4th of July.
