Fail By Numbers

….the original idea was to take the 50 year old oil paints left over after I replaced their paint by numbers palette with acrylics and revitalise them with linseed oil as suggested on the box, then smash them with the mallet whilst counting loudly, to create an abstract “piant by numbers” pattern….

….we (me & Spencer) didn’t factor in the robustness of the 70s plastic vials that the paint has been stored in all these years….

…we retired to the living room to listen to vintage Italian film music and talk shit in lieu of being “creative” for the afternoon….

…my dreams of being able to repurpose the evil fluids have been returned to the planning department for adjustment…
