I took a little visit to a Cape Cod nursing facility with my art supplies and a roll of masking tape in tow. Those that awaited my arrival checked out my demo painting, "Stained Glass Window" and offered varying responses. Some were excited to begin and others noted "I'm not an artist" or "I can't do fine detail." Colors from the warm side of the color wheel, sturdy brushes and encouragement were offered. Masking tape was applied to produce angular spaces for painting. The artists began mixing colors and tentatively applying paint to the canvas. The final touch of blue (the focal point) was added and the paintings were officially in the "hot mess" stage for sure. THEN the magic happened...the tape was carefully removed! Vibrant and concise geometric shapes appeared from the messy, painty surface. The most common responses from the group were wide eyes and a "WOW!"
I just love to create opportunities for a good "WOW." Not an artist? Can't do fine detail? ...well then, I have just the tools in my toolbox to get the job done.
