I can’t believe I never posted this painting before. It was completed in 2018, I think it made an appearance in some shows, then it got buried behind thousands of other paintings for the last couple years.
Because I believe in recycling and upcycling, I sometimes paint over other paintings, either my own or canvases that I find in thrift stores or garage sales. This was a nothing-special mass produced painting I picked up at a garage sale, the canvas was still in good shape.
Around this time I was experimenting with pouring paint. I thinned the paint and adding a pouring medium, then watched as the colors merged and separated, so cool! Then I added layers of acrylic in interesting shapes and directions over that.
Without getting too political, “Get Up Stand Up” is just one of Peter Tosh and Bob Marely’s songs that speaks to me. Not only is it an internationally recognized human rights anthem, but also a personal reminder to stay true and to stand up for what is right!
Have a great weekend everyone!!! ☺❤🖤🙌
