I wanted to continue to work on the creation of a series of three paintings inspired by but not replicating the red, blue and green abstracts shown in Penny’s apartment on Big Bang Theory. I posted my Red Zone painting a few days ago and now I have completed my Blue Zone painting. It is a 12 inch by 12 inch acrylic painting done on canvas. I focused on using spontaneous, swirling brush strokes. I also used a palette knife and toothpicks to create the painting. I used the toothpicks to swirl colors together rather like chefs do when making a marbled cake or cupcakes. The little white flecks are intentional. I was listening to an old 78 recording of Blues standards and the white flecks represent the crackling sound I heard as I painted. Painting like this is fun…you can just let go and play. And with this type of painting all accidents are happy!
