My Painting #19 - Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days - January 2014 Challenge

"Wall Flower"
This is actually a painting that I started a while ago.  It was pretty much finished, but needed just a little more.  It was fun finding this painting again so that I could feature it for today.

I am calling this one "Wall Flower".  This one has several layers both free style as well as stenciled.  This one was a lot of fun to create. 

Hope you enjoy today's painting.

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and ... Break a Bristle.

    1. Thank you so much, Guin. I took one of Alisa Burke's graffiti online classes not too long ago, and it was a blast.

      Enjoy your day!

    1. Thanks, Sue. I'm trying. (Not every painting I post was completed for the challenge...but I don't like the idea of leaving the day blank.) Hope you are having an enjoyable day!!

  4. I was never part of the hippie movement, (I was in diapers at that time), but this has flower power written all over it :) Peace, Love, and Harmony! I love your beat up, used and abused texture on the wall Joan. Sets off your bold petals beautifully!

    1. That's what I thought too, Sheila -- Flower Power!! When I was in high school, I imagined myself owning a Volkswagon Bug - a yellow one with a BIG red flower like this painted on both of the doors!! Hope you are having a fun day! Enjoy Day #23.

    2. In the mid 70's my Dad had a baby blue bug for a while. We were small enough we could sit in the back window. There was a little cubbie back there instead of a dashboard. I loved that car, even though at the time it was old and needed some work. A yellow one would have been WOWderful!

  5. You know when you see a flower, coming out of cement, and you wonder how that poor little flower actually survived there? This is what I see in your painting! I always think of hope, when I see something like this. If that little flower can grow out of cement, than I can do anything! Love the painting ;o) Big Hugs ;o)

  8. I agree with Guin. As soon as I saw it, I was wondering if it were a mural. It does look like graffiti on an actual brick wall. It kind of has an illusion-like effect. You come up with some pretty fantastic ideas for paintings, Joan: one of the things that I love most about your art.
