day seventy.

hey! today's post is a bit unusual for me. short story: i got called out on my perfectionism & need to control today, so i thought i'd experiment a little with lack of control in one area of my life- tonight's painting. i did not enjoy the process or result; it was painful, actually.

my process: i just took cans of paint and poured them onto the paper (lying on the ground). i used a paint brush for the white paint because it was pouring too slowly. then, i took yellow spray paint and covered the painting.  i suppose it's Pollock-esque, but i have a hard time even remotely comparing this garbage to Pollock. he was a genius. nevertheless, it was a release for me, took off some self-afflicted stress, and was kinda fun. :)


my result: this yellow-tinted mess on a small piece of paper (what was i thinking?!) that is so thick it will take 2 weeks to dry.
