This week’s art is a mixed media piece that basically exists because the old Myasthenia Gravis has flared up with the hot weather, and I needed to take some physical shortcuts. Plus this post will be published on Memorial Day, which is one of those holidays where hardly anybody visits this blog, so I didn’t want to go all-out on something elaborate.
In this case, I created a basic design digitally, then printed it out on cheap matte-finish photo paper, then painted over it with acrylics that I’d watered down to the point where they behaved like watercolors.
And then I microwaved it to speed up the drying, which actually added some distortion to the finished piece that I feel improved it somewhat. If you squint, it looks even better. Close your eyes completely and it looks spectacular.
