conglomerate by crazyruthie conglomerate by crazyruthie
a lot of paint on canvas board 8"x10" aka 25cmx20cm
this is about 3 years worth of paint--whenever i finished a painting session i took a pallette knife and wiped any extra paint on this board.

Great, I'm thinking you may have created a graphic representation of chaos theory. Realise it is random but there are discernible patterns in it, cool.:D (Big Grin)

wow. thanks. :)

it's hard to make something that is *actually* random but in  this case you're right, it really is. 
i'm kind of into pattern recognition, so that's awesome! :)

quite an interesting piece considering how it into existence. I like the colorful, all-overness of it. when I attended the Yale Summer School of Music/Art many years ago there were about three of us who did the same thing, I used maybe an 8"x 5" canvas board. with all the scraping paint back off of canvases I had about an inch and a half thick muddy mound of paint by the end of my two months there, lol! anyway hopefully you've started work on another. :D:horns:

i guess you're a lot more creative than me cause i never would have thought of it, someone told me about theirs and i started it. you're right, i should start a new one. it used to be one of my favorite things to do with paint, lol. i like the way it's so random. i didn't even look at it when i was slapping the paint on there so it really is random. my only problem is that i've been painting only with watercolors lately. i change from medium to medium while the obsession is strong. i've tried pasting a lot of watercolor like that, and it's cool looking, but it's too expensive, too sticky and too brittle to work. lol

I don't know that I'd say I'm more creative... possibly more maladjusted but other than that... lol!

nope, not possible to be more maladjusted than me! i have a huge list of disorders...bpd, ocd, ptsd, etc. etc. lol maybe it's that you have much more experience with art than i do. :D

well certainly it does. ;P idk, I lost my parents before I turned 4, my grandfather while in high school and my brother (only sibling) in early 1996, didn't think I'd make it to 30. that's had a huge effect on me, I won't bother getting into how it's affected my interpersonal relationships.

wow, that's just awful. i wish my mother had died before i remembered anything about her. but like you, i shan't get into it now. lol i thought i would die at 26. i have no idea why, but until i reached 26 and made it to 27, i really believed it. i don't have any siblings and i won't have contact with any of my extended family, my grandparents were fairly cool. my gramma ruth was a professional painter. they're all dead now, though. it's just me, my husband, and my dad and stepmother. i don't have very many interpersonal relationships and that's how i want it. i liked exchanging letters, back in the day when people did that! and now i enjoy online friends. i think i've driven away all my real life friends, but i don't really see that as a problem. XD

i thought of it because sometimes i'd be left with a big blob of paint and used to brush it onto a canvas or paper, that's how spontaneous and messy i am, and then i'd have a load of paintings that turned out similarly colored. lol so i started on the canvas board. i think :iconmisterwackydoodle: is who i heard about it in the first place...i can't remember if i can take credit for the idea or not! lol

Hehe this is great!
I always wondered what to do with extra paint since I have the annoying habit of using all the paint on my palette and by doing so, ruining the painting... Thought I would not have the patience to do something like this... instead I made a little album where I paint with the leftovers... xD
