Swirls of color painted with Daniel Smith acrylics on Arches paper. This one I painted alongside the other one I posted a couple of posts ago. I often tape down more than one piece a paper at a time. Sometimes the paintings become pairs that I frame and hang together, other times they remain individual pieces. I cut my paper the same size and mask the painting area the same size. If I keep all my paintings the same size, it makes it easier when I got to buy frames. I have a friend who makes everything the same size and them exchanges the frames from one piece to another when putting things in different shows. I'd prefer to frame the ones I like the best, if I can afford it. American Frame has great prices on mats and frames.
