As Bob Ross would say, this painting was a happy accident—the result of a bottle of purple ink accidentally spilling all over a white canvas, and the frugal artist's frantic attempts to not let the expensive liquid acrylic go to waste. Sensing an opportunity, this was whipped up with urgency and little regard for the final outcome, in a painting style the artist has described as improvisational.

This card is printed on heavyweight 5 gram recycled cardstock, in 14 point thickness. Whether you are mailing it halfway around the world or buying it to collect, they are built to stand up to the elements of time.

As I alluded to above, this was created by happenstance when a full bottle of ink spilled. Without any time to think, I only had time to react and thus was born this abstract expressionism painting. Lots of light blues, deep purples & neon highlights make this pop, but several ounces of the purest purple pigment are at the heart of the centerpiece. While much of my work is spontaneous, it does not typically involve dumping out completely full containers of ink onto canvas.
