Our art this week is an experiment in working with thick paint on a coarse canvas board using plastic eating utensils as brushes for part of the work. The paint is acrylic and the title of the piece is nicked from the song “Roundabout” by YES.

I am not usually an outdoorsy or nautical person, but this was inspired by some of the views you see while being driven along Lakeshore Drive in Chicago safely nestled in the back of a taxi. I didn’t use any photo reference, so this is basically a jumble of happy accidents and playing. I’ll be exploring this style a bit more in the future.
