{pretty mess}

Holy cow do I ever love these painting by Michael Cina that I saw on Design Sponge this morning. I know, I know, some of you are like “it’s just a bunch of paint blobs” and I guess in a literal sense you’re right. But there’s something about these paint blobs that get a reaction from me, so that makes them more. Not surprisingly I think what I love most is the colour selection. I also love how organic they blend and bleed into each other. I can appreciate the ones where the paint is manipulated more by the artist because it takes a great eye & skill to create balance or tension or anything else you want the viewer to feel but I really love when you put a bunch of great materials together and let them do their thang & see what happens. Here are a few of my favourites….
