Maybe it is because my partner was diagnosed with MS years ago… or maybe it’s the idea of my brain firing so much lately with painting ideas that keep me up at night…

Sides are painted blue to match the paintings theme. No framing necessary. Hanging hardware is attached and is ready to be hung in any area that needs a pop of color!

    I like it! Reminds me of my own work, admittedly. Did you use acrylic markers for the lines? Took me forever to find a way to draw crisp lines with acrylic and I do that a lot. Getting a good thick white line is always a challenge. I have several brands of acrylic markers, both refillable and not, in different widths.

      I used a Sakura Permanent white marker (Pen-Touch) EF to draw the lines. Sometimes I just paint them with a liner, but the white in this is so much more vibrant! I actually want to add some marker/brushes to my arsenal soon, the marker was much quicker, though not as much fun! Have a great weekend Karen!

    Beautiful, love the vibrancy and mingling of colors. Has a nice dialogue with the viewer…me…enjoying the abstracted shapes and textures, looking for connections…then the title hits me…and I laugh. Great painting, thank you for sharing.
