Hi Folks, this is the finished painting that I posted as a WIP, its 51 x 51" and its Acrylic.

This is even better than the WIP we saw - great job, Katie! More color, less white, fire and celebration! It has movement both up (the fire) and down (the confetti). It must be amazing IRL.

Beautiful Katie! Love the yellows and purples and that you were sparing on using blues which makes them stand out more. I have seen at least 2 faces in this (one I think is a cat?). :thumbsup:

Very nice Katie! This has to be so very impressive IRL at that size!

Susan...Thank you, it does look better irl, It's gone to the gallery today, so I am hopeful this client of the gallery will take it..
Dave....I remember you saying "it could go either way"....and you were right, it was tricky, in future if I ever attempt another, I will have to try to complete most of it in one go...
Jim...The yellow is lovely irl, I have a theory that people are drawn to yellow, whenever I paint anything in yellow people always seem to like it.

Dynamic, Katie! Is this all paint, or have you used collage for the small squares?

Mardi Gras. It is filled with music.

I love how the yellow is done differently than the others. It makes the painting interesting just because it lacks uniformity... :thumbsup:
