The Story:

I wrote this story in 2016, the piece was created in 2012 so I did my best to remember the details.

I actually remember quite a bit about Abstract in Pastel.  It was an accident, although a happy accident.

I created a larger piece using the same color scheme. ¬†The medium I used to create both pieces¬†is painter’s caulk. ¬†I started out with 6 different containers of caulk. ¬†I added either an ink or an acrylic paint to each container to get the color I wanted. ¬†After creating the original piece I had leftover caulk. ¬†I hate wasting things so I grabbed an 8″ x 10″ canvas board and began to put mounds of the leftover caulk on randomly. ¬†I carefully smoothed it to cover the board, but being careful not to mix it too much. ¬†This piece was the result. ¬†I ended up really liking this piece but completely hating the original.

What was the original piece? ¬†In a word: ¬†UGLY. ¬†Seriously, that one was a big epic fail. ¬†It was ugly enough that I removed all the images of it from my site, something I almost never do. ¬†I tried to salvage it by spray-painting it white. ¬†Even that didn’t save it (I deleted those pics too). ¬†I¬†rarely throw out work, but that one met the trash at the end of 2015.

The moral of the story:  Sometimes nice things are born from failure.
