Alien Pirate Ship

12"x12" Original painting and collage on a thick, gallery style canvas, ready to hang. You can frame it if you really want to, but the thick canvas alone makes it look great hanging on the wall. I used very thin acrylics mixed with water to create the background. I didn't have any pre-planned idea of what I was going to make, I simply wanted to enjoy the act of painting. The only colors I used were cobalt blue, red and yellow. The result was this weird watery-blue/green sky and raining red clouds. Next I started to cut and rearrange some tall triangles that reminded me of a sail boat, by adding more triangles started to resemble a pirate ship.
