Inspire me Thursday: Action Painting - Spring aka the indestructable pea!

I just came across a site called "Inspire me Thursday", and just had to take the challenge right away! The theme is action painting, a “style of painting in which paint is spontaneously dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than being carefully applied.” Posted above is one of my few abstracts titled "Spring". I was doing a study in acrylics on canvas paper, decided it wasn't working and proceeded to drip and swirl some paint around until I saw a seedling sprouting and went with it. I tend to be very tight with my work and it was quite liberating!

Ok Dawn, glad you like something I've done. Finally, geesh! And in your honor I've re-named it the indestructable pea. :-)
NOW, when are you going to start your art blog? While your at it, you should sell your crafts on Etsy too! That's my next task.

Hmmm, I've been hearing a lot about this Inspire me Thursday, need to check it out. Especially since it inspired you to do this terrific painting. I really love the movement and the colors. Very cool!
