5.5×5″ acrylic on shade

I have to say, I’ve never painted on this kind of window shade before. (This is a shade sample from a major window covering company.) It has been inhabiting a desk drawer for a few years. In my cleaning-and-sorting phase, I brought a bunch of these up to my studio not knowing how I might use them. This time, I scraped acrylic paint in layers on the outstretched sample. I was going to take a second photo when it was folded back up again, but it doesn’t look that interesting when compressed (and also, it keeps unfolding back open!). So, let me know if you want your shades painted (ha!)!
