Amazing Contemporary Art Created Using Leftover House Paint

These colorful abstract paintings are created using leftover house paint that I rescue from recycling centers. I have developed some interesting techniques for working with the paint including pouring, pulling, pressing and dripping it onto canvas. While the paint is wet, I often use tools, washes of water, or my fingers to create imagery. The paint dries slowly, and in the process of drying, serendipitous things sometimes occur, such as bubbles that pop to reveal another color below. My eco-friendly paintings create a unique focal point for contemporary interiors, and the green materials complement sustainable design. You can see a video on the home page of my website where I show how this particular painting process is done: http://tondro.com

    Love "Azure"! Would you think kids could do a project with recycled paint? Would be messy but I know they would LOVE it!
