Covid Creativity: 29Jul2020

By Susanne Muri 

Speak rainbow 

Acrylic painting on canvas,  lots of blending to get the effects of a rainbow and to make the lips supper glossy, adding lots of small details. Working with many different tools, brush, sponge, knife. 

I felt the title is so fitting at a time like this, speaking with so many people at work and seeing so many different ways and views. 

Speak rainbow.  All colours are needed to create harmony.

Ocean of pain and happiness 

This painting is created with Flow Acrylic on canvas,  adding  different paints in cups and pouring them on to canvas,  using some small effects with brush and knife. 

Creating paintings with liquid paints feels very surprising and freeing. Some areas are bright and beautiful, some dark and scary. A lot like life.
