Acrylic painting Addison Paige #43 Riot and Graffiti  by Addison Paige

Addison Paige #43 Riot and Graffiti

#43 36" x 36" x 1 7/8" Acrylic and charcoal on canvas. 2014 

So many elements in this painting are moving about and twirling around and going about their own business. This painting started out as one thing that was just to pretty and dull to my eyes but there were some lovely areas I didn't want to lose. This time I was able to avoid painting over the good areas and losing them forever. I will always enjoy being able to see the hidden bits behind the build up of multiple layers, for me it is such a metaphor for life.

I have continued the painting over the edge of the gallery wrapped canvas so that this painting does not require framing.
