This painting was a bit of an interesting experiment, if not simply because of the thought. "Could I create a painting with a toothbrush"? and the answer is yes, yes I can. But I decided to take it a step further and see what kinds of effects I could get from an old stiff brush, an old makeup brush, a cotton swab, and fresh nivea wipes and whatever paint I had on my palette.
So I guess this painting was a bit of an experiment with different textures and different tools. Despite being a bit of a mess, its a very interesting mess because it truly does have a lot of interesting things going on in it. So once again in a very real, raw and even therapeutic sense this painting has become a masterpiece in its own right.
I don't know what it is about these kinds of paintings, you just lose yourself in a myriad of feelings by looking at a couple of elements which attribute to nothing. That is the experience of abstract art, it has its own meaning.
The painting itself was done an a 16" by 20" stretched canvas and is very light. If needed it could even hang on a thumbtack.
