Dead Fly 71 - Splat!

Dead Fly 71 - Splat!
acrylic on canvas 8" x 10"

     Here's an experiment in color and paint - and painting fast! Well, anyways, that's how it started out. Then I took a look at it. Back in art school I had a teacher who said we must be willing to destroy works that don't quite work out. Paint over the canvas. Burn them. Smash them. Stick them up in the attic where no one will did them till after your're dead. This one got set aside for a while. Then I figured I'd add more to it so this is where it went. No great shakes but it kind of looks like an egg splatted on the sidewalk to me. Another one that is what it is.
