Rothko-Inspired Painting on Cardboard

I came across these Rothko-esque paintings by artist Dee Adams and am completely smitten.  Her graphic paintings are produced on cardboard!  Isn't that fantastic?  Anyone who has painted knows that canvases, and art supplies in general, can be pricey.  Hubby used to make stretchers for me and then we'd spend hours tugging and stapling canvas, but it's a ton of work.  Using cardboard is a great idea for practice, kid's projects, etc. - look how chic it looks!

  1. These are so gorgeous! I love that they are done on cardboard, such a great idea!

  2. I really love the idea . Her work reminds me of Rothko :)

  3. I'm a huge Rothko fan, and I'm also a fan of saving money. What a great idea!

  4. Love these! As usual you totally rock on the artwork, my friend! M.

  5. I wish I was as going at coming up with creative ideas as I am at finding them :P
