geometric painting


A few weeks ago I did this geometric painting for a friend's bedroom. I was given the colors she wanted and a sort-of description of the inspiration painting with the instructions to "Do whatever. I trust you." Eek. Nothing freaks me out more than free reign. After a few failed attempts at knocking off the inspiration painting, I ditched it and did my own thing. I used a ruler to draw the geometric shape in pencil and then hand painted it in. 


I love it. It turned out better than I thought it would and it was hard to give this one away. It took hours upon hours to paint and I miss old Geo (I just named it). We spend so much time together, that painting and I, and it hurts to be apart. I hope you're enjoying your new home, Geo. Sniff.

  1. Wonderful! Very cool idea to use a ruler to draw in random geometric shapes. I'll have to share that tip with my 9 year old daughter - she loves to paint!
