Silver Splash

"‘Silver Splash’ is a rescue painting. It originally began as a textured painting where the texture was to represent raindrops on a window. Things were progressing nicely until I accidentally spilled the full container of blue paint on the canvas. Now destroyed, I covered the canvas with the spilled paint and set it aside. About 6 months later, I decided to revisit it. It was bluer than I had remembered and also had the texture on it. Well, the original was to have a rain theme and it was very blue, so I thought I would continue with a water theme. Using a thin mixture of dark blue, I created the effect of water running in all directions down the canvas from the upper corner. That went as planned, but it lacked something. I then took a bottle of mirror paint and let that run down from the same corner. As the paint was alcohol based, it didn’t make it too far before it began to dry. The reflective qualities of paint allowed for the corner colors to change based on what was in front of it. I then decided to add some additional interest by adding a few squares, painting them in a hue of red that would allow them to appear as though they floated above the blue."
