My first painting, made as a logo for Random Art Wednesday. I bought red, yellow, black, and turquoise paints and some black canvases to experiment with, and now those feel like my colors. I have stuck with them since.

This painting was made entirely without the use of brushes. All paints used in this piece were dropped from their bottles onto the canvas and allowed to run their courses guided only by gravity. Once on the canvas, the paints were never physically touched.

I’ve never worked with tempera glitter paint before, and after this I never want to work with it again. It is difficult to apply, difficult to see, it dissolves underlying dried paint, and doesn’t give anything like the finished effect I was looking for. Still, I’m happy with the way this turned out, especially the weathering on the yellow stripes. I feel like I’m finally getting a real feel for making colors do what I want on black canvas.

This painting unfortunately sustained minor water damage when my roof and ceiling collapsed during a violent thunderstorm. The water damage has been cleaned as much as possible and a new sealant applied in an effort to restore and preserve the original colors.

I sketched this as an experiment/proof of concept to test a kinetic technique in which I moved my hand in a series of rapid elliptical strokes, never ceasing movement even when the pen/pencil wasn’t touching the paper. The shading under the model was scribbling; I never stopped moving the pen and it never left the paper. Unfortunately this sketch has gone missing, and after repeated failed attempts to locate it I have accepted it as lost. This is the only photograph that was ever taken of it, and is all that remains of this piece.
