Floorcloth

I've had a little break from daily painting this week. Since my studio has carpet on the floor and I tend to sling paint, I decided to make this 4' x 6' floorcloth to stand on. I figure if I drop paint on it, I'll just transform it into another posy. Or a bug or a butterfly. Clever, eh? Of course, the hardest part will be stepping on a work of art that took me several days to create.

This is actually a dropcloth coated with polyurethane, painted with acryclic, then coated again with polyurethane. If I do another floorcloth, it will be on a proper canvas for that purpose, because this stuff was not easy to paint on.
