Inspired by Picaso

Picasso....What can I say about the cubist?  Not my favorite artist.  I like his blue period, but I just don't love him.  I like abstract art, so I don't know why.....Anyway, I tried to find a piece I hadn't seen before and wouldn't you know it, someone else used the same image.  Great  minds think alike!

This was inspired by Picasso The Kitchen.

I started with two coats of China Glaze Concrete.  I missed getting a pic of it on it's own, but you MUST Google for some swatches.  It is a gorgeous green tinted grey.  LOVE it!

Next I sponged with Nails Inc Fouberts Place.  This is a really ugly baby poop dark greyed brown, but like most greys in my stash, I have a soft spot in my heart for it.

 Finally I stamped with Finger Paints Black Expressionism and Shany SH211, which is reminiscent of the lines on The Kitchen.  I love the full nail images on this plate, unfortunately they are square instead of rectangle.  The span the whole nail horizontally, but not vertically.  As you can see I am not that well versed on double stamping.  Oh well, it is supposed to be abstract, right?

Whatch ya think?  Now go check out all the other Picaso inspired manis.
