Paint Party Friday: Cinco Santos at Vox's 5th year Annivesary Art Show

Whoo hoo,  I am actually posting a new piece this week.  I made this Mixed Media Painting for Vox's
5th Anniversary Art show.  We are celebrating this (2nd Saturday) and I am very pleased with what I came up with.  The rules were:   The piece had to be 5 x 5 inches, and the subject had have "5" as a theme.

I can get quickly blocked when there is a theme or rules, so I had no idea what to come up with that represented 5.  At first, I was going to come up with 5 elements or paint something using 5 colors, but I just couldn't get motivated to come up with something.  So..., I prayed to my Santos above to give me guidance.  Yup, I prayed to 5 of them, and Viola, I became inspired to paint 5 Saints!  You couldn't stop me when I started, and I came up with this piece!


 I used a mixture of paint, clay and paper, and to stay "green" I recycled a canvas that had a previous painting nightmare.   I think this one is a keeper.  Anyhoo it is for sale at Vox Gallery.  Here is more info on the show.



Don't forget to visit Paint Party Friday! Lots of great art at your fingertips and it's a great way to get your art seen and appreciated!  Have a great weekend everyone!
