Concentric and Then Some

"Concentric and Then Some"
10" x 20"
Acrylic on stretched canvas
I wish I could tell you what was going on in my head as I created this piece.  I made it soon after my studio was finished when I was experimenting with color, texture and expressing myself in strange ways.  

I love making pieces like this.  I may schedule quarterly experiments in 2012.  If I put it on the calendar I may just do it!

  1. I like this Carol. Nice color palette.

    How did you make those concentric circular lines? I've thought maybe that someone could use a compass to make circles, but wouldn't that leave a hole in the center? How did you do that?

  2. Hi Virginia, I used a rubber faux-finishing comb and just twirled it through the wet paint. It looks complex, but is really quite easy and a nifty effect, if not over used.

  3. Gosh, there is so much that I don't know!
