A painting on a Hoopa Loopa

Taking a stroll with a friend 

 A hoopa loopa wall hanging piece done on muslin acrylic and charcoal 12 x12 
I been eying these forever. At first I wondered what the whole hoop was about and how it works. Now I know! I have fallen in love with these. I thought I can use this as a canvas. A painting doesn't have to be always square hmmmm let me try it out! And so I did last night and I had a blast painting on it. I took muslin tighten it, added gesso, waited for it to dry and started to create and here is my piece and I love the results.


  1. Just wonderful!!
    I too wondered what was so great about the hoop. Then I tried it and LOVED them - cheap and instant frame. Made two of them last night as a matter of fact.

  2. I'm with soggy, love love love it!!! The color the movement, and the query on their faces! Excellent!
