I am back to building rainbows with my friends from Daisy Yellow. The color for today was Pale pink or salmon. I chose pink – even though I’m not much of a pink person. I mixed some pink paint and I loved that it looked and had the texture of frosting. I decided to go bigger than my tags this week and move up to a postcard size piece of work. I upcycle old unused exhibit cards into miniature pieces of art. So I grabbed one and spread the paint/frosting on with a palette knife, icing my postcard. My first swipe left some of the art from the postcard showing through and I liked that effect. Once it had dried I was wondering what to do next. I considered leaving it as is, but then decided to add some words. Sort of an amateur Haiga. Writing on the paint with my sharpie was not as easy as I had hoped so my execution wasn’t so great. Oh well, what are you going to do?! I also posted some pale pink 5’x5″ valentines I made last year.
