The Day After
Matted - 20"x16"
Acrylic on Yupo
Every once in a while I like to root around in my studio closet just to see what I have stashed away since we moved here. I found this painting I did on Yupo a couple of years ago. If you haven't tried working on this fun material, you should. It is a synthetic (plastic) material that allows the paint to slide around on the surface, creating all sorts of interesting forms. It was originally created as a tough, durable material for the graphic arts industry and was manufactored in a variety of thicknesses. Somehow, a starving artist somewhere decided to try it out and suddenly discovered it made a fun surface to paint on. Or, maybe he just had some packing material laying around the studio and accidentally dripped paint on it, who knows, either way it's an interesting discovery.
