a canvas tacked down style done earlier in the week and finished today... polished up. :rolleyes: . kind of reminiscent of slices of metals polished and viewed under a microscope. Not a usual source for a painting.. but hey...

MIDO00O and Bumble... thanks glad you like this one.. I have started sketching out my ideas and picking the palette prior to starting the work, and I am liking the results.. they seem more consistent. I although I do give myself time to just play and doodle around ..:D:D:D;);)

Marvellous, marvellous! Conceptual and textile art in one piece! A masterful abstract painted on a canvas by Missoni ...

Caesar... thank you my friend... I will have to check out your reference... I decided to bend the framework of the image so it is like some paintings I have seen where the artist does not stretch the canvas but merely tacks it to the wall... In the digital world this is an artifice but I think it opens up some possibilities for showing a image and the surface below ( a layer or virtual one )... thoughts on that?? do you think it is too much of a gimmick??

Your idea of hanging a canvas directly was a brilliant one and You may also have a textured, brushworked and somehow painted wall (like, for instance our spatolato veneziano herebelow some sample for possible use as stencil or grain), but with toned down colors and patterns, so to be an ancillary part of the main painting.
As for Missoni, a fabric, tissues and fashion designer and manufacturer, here's a reference: http://www.google.it/search?q=missoni+fabrics&hl=it&biw=1003&bih=592&gbv=2&tbm=isch&ei=02AuTpj1BMfs-gbCp5HLDg&sa=N&start=0&ndsp=20
You may obviously Google only Missoni: http://www.google.it/search?hl=it&biw=1003&bih=575&gbv=2&tbm=isch&btnG=Cerca&oq=missoni+&aq=f&aqi=g10&q=missoni
or Missoni home or Missoni dress ...
