Sometimes it’s the Unexpected

I’ve made a bit of a breakthrough in an art project I’m working on. It came about kind of backwards.

When I mixed the colors for this picture…

I came out with this…

Unplanned, unexpected, but very aesthetically pleasing to my eye! Alex actually pointed it out to me and noted shapes he saw in the mess of color. I’ve shown it around and this reaction is so much fun! It’s like the inkblots that psychologists use. I’ve always liked when the finished piece is only the first step and gets a life of its own once I’m done with it.

Here is another example. I’m still working on capturing the idea.
