In the spring of 2007, Le Petit Art Guild held a luncheon at Don’s Seafood on Veterans Boulevard. After the meal, artist Myrle Van created a happy accident watercolor painting. Her wet ‘n’ wet colors inspired my palette for this dot painting.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

Beginning with background colors yellow, blue and magenta, I added dots of green and darker dots of my background colors. I varied the green in some areas of the piece. The combination of colors adds a vibration to my image.


  1. This is very cool, Mo. It seems quite different to me than the others. The pattern of the dots is more random, perhaps. I like it. It has a very festive, celebration sort of feel to it. :)

  2. Daisy:

    Thank you. : )

    The randomness of dots was my attempt to portray what happens when you wet paper and touch a watercolor filled brush to it. The pigment spreads out and makes unpredictable clumps.

    I like "festive" and "celebration."
