This is Art?

Well, it is too soon to say! I have been playing around with acrylics and different mediums & gels this afternoon & I just had to take a photo of this. I don't know if it is going to end up in the trash or end up a really cool painting but I sure am having fun :)
I am playing with several different paintings right now, all abstract in acrylic just to see what I can do when I mix all these strange products together. Once the white layer that looks like cake icing dries it will be transparent & glossy and show the layers underneath.
So either I will wake up to something cool tomorrow or start on something else :)

Don't you love the anticipation when you're working in uncharted territory? I can't wait to see what happens with this.:)

Hey Tracey! it looks very interesting...love the texture and colours. I have to try this one time.

Hey Lisa :) It is very fun you should try it, soft gel from Golden, they have tons of other cool gels though as I am sure you know. I will post an update now that it is dry. It did not turn out as I exepected, likely due to all my fussing...I have to learn to just step back from the painting & walk away...but it is not over yet :)

Yes Billie you inspired me with all your gesso play :) It is so much fun, like wet in wet with watercolor but if I hate the end result I can just cover it up :)
