P.S. I included a photo of the clean up because I see beauty in that part as well.
Update: I had originally posted this on my phone and wanted to add a little more to this. This painting took roughly 3hrs. I completed it in one sitting. It actually used a lot more colors than expected to get all the hues. (blue, yellow, orange, red, two greens, purple, and white)
It felt really good to have time to paint before school starts again. I may try to make one more painting before next semester. I am hoping to enter this one in a exhibition in the fall and if I make another, I will enter it in the spring.
