There's a green one and a pink one and a blue one and a yellow one! :) It was sung so often at my art camp...

This is great - I just spotted your gallery (like so many others, hehe) and love it! Nice job incorporating different colors into the cardboard - you've managed to add interest to a painting that could end up bland!

I love that song... maybe subconsciously why I was drawn to boxes..?

Thanks :)

its so fab, i love your strong use of blues and whites in everything you do, and that works especially well here against the brown card
i love paintings of otherwise relatively uninteresting subjects, you gave the boxes life and set them free!:D

I was hoping I would be at the forefront, and already I'm behind the curve :(

Hopefully I'm still in early enough to be considered in the first wave of the movement

What, no rabbit heads? Maybe imagined ones, in the boxes. How macabre.

I enjoy your brushstrokes. The paint spatters on the floor are especially effective.

That could very well be... rabbit-heads ordered off of eBay, freshly opened boxes...

wanted to take a break and paint something different, albeit mundane ;)... but sometimes it turns out to be great fun to paint something as "seemingly dull" as boxes... glad you enjoy!
