My entry expresses the values of letting go of standards and having fun, letting things happen on their own and letting control go, as I did when making this painting. I stopped with a previous style that got me down and I didn't enjoy it, so this painting marks a transition into a new, more enjoyable style and way of making art. It also expresses the value of moving on and exploring new styles. It also expresses the value of finding beauty in simplicity, as it mimics what would usually be tossed down a sink when someone is cleaning their paints, something that would be washed away and forgotten about. It highlights this through its materials and the way it was made which is water and acrylic which were poured and moved around on paper to create the organic movements of the paint, which also expresses the value of freedom.
