MM21 is a vibrant, energetic, mixed media abstract that was created using oil, scrapes of paper, and spray paint.  Janet says, "I wanted to create a piece with no rules or direction.  Just paint and let go.  Driven of course by loud punk music, this piece expresses freedom and energy." Janet's process involves stacking oil paint carefully into lines using knives, then blending, adding, and repositioning the paint around paper scrapes and other media.  It is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas, with finished sides, and comes ready to hang.
