Thank you! It's about 3 3/4" x 7 1/5" and I used acrylic paint. I use various diameters of dowels as dotting tools, which I re-sized the tips of with a handheld pencil sharpener. The "canvas" is just a nice piece of black-painted cardboard I had around. (Eventually I'll "graduate" to using real canvas but for now the budget says cardboard :-) )

Always enjoy works that combine bold magenta and hot green. Fun piece.

Try buying scraps of loose canvas at the art supply store. It is very cheap (occasionally free) and letís you have an archivable piece of work on a budget. You can stretch or adhere to a display surface later.:heart:

Glad you like it, and thank you for the tip!

No art supply stores out here, but I go into Chicago every now and then, and that'll be a great excuse to hit the Dick Blick store that's right on the way. Plus any other places I might find with an online search :-)
