Melancholy Madness

16″ x 20″ Acrylic on canvas

My intention was to do a painting with all the different shades of red acrylic paint in my collection, which was about 10 shades. It was pretty cool looking with just all the reds, but, I couldn’t resist the temptation to add more color. I pressed another wet painting onto the shades of red, adding gold, yellow and blue. I like it, but I wish I had stopped and kept my initial intention. Oh well!

This is actually one of a series, I will be sharing the others soon!

Success! You're on the list.


  1. I think the touches of other color work really well, Tiffany! I’ve found. really liked stuff I do in one color really satisfying, and this really comes across in your work too. There must be a magic in this melancholy madness! ❤️
