Mad Artist Experiment #1

You know when you get a crazy idea (sure you do) and yet it makes such perfect sense you just have to do it? are the results of my crazy idea. This painting was accomplished with fine paintbrushes, pen nibs, and my vacuum cleaner. That's right. My vacuum cleaner.
Mwuh huh huh haaaaa....

2008/09 Acrylic Inks, Modeling Paste, Fluid Acrylics.


  1. Pleeeease, tell us how you used a vacuum cleaner with this lovely image.

  2. Inquiring minds want to know... HOW did you do it... spill the beans.

  3. Modeling paste, or molding paste, is very thick stuff. I was hoping to get it to behave like watercolours blown at with a straw. But I got this beautiful ripply honeycomb type texture instead. My vacuum can be used to blow up air mattresses. : )
    I'm thinking air compressor next!

  4. What a cool idea...this piece is terrific! :)

  5. Thanks Sherry and Elaine! : )Glad you both dropped by!! It's nice to be blogging again!
