Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I like geometrics lines and shapes and dots and stripes too. I was thinking of cities and streets and telephone lines and all that urban-ness.

This is painted with recycled acrylic house paint and I also used some black ink that I found at a thrift store. I even had a calligraphy pen around and used that to make the smaller lines.

I use paint in squirt bottles to apply the paint to the canvas. Being self-taught - I really just get to do whatever comes to mind! How great is that?

This was painted flat on my work table and then stretched onto wooden bars after the painting was completed. That way the image goes all the way around the edges and no need for a frame. I have sealed it with a clear acrylic varnish and there is a sturdy wire on the back waiting for the nail in your wall.

The virtual room may not be to scale.
