Gallery Wall In The Works – Franz Kline

I love gallery walls.  I have been wanting one for a while now, so I have been slowly trying to put one together in my apartment!  Here is my work in progress…


I was looking at it the other day and was thinking… it needs an abstract piece.  I immediately thought of Franz Kline.  Seeing as I probably can’t get my hands on a real one right now, I thought I could take inspiration from him and create one of my own!

I decided to “Get my Franz on!”


I also paid a little homage to one of the other greats with a little splatter… Franz with a dash of Pollock.



Now, let’s see it on the gallery wall!  (I don’t know what I would do without 3M Command Strips.  It took me two seconds to put on the wall!)


Not too shabby… if I do say so myself.  Now, I think I might need a Black & White print on the left side to balance it out.  I also might change that orange frame.

Here’s the Before & After…


Supplies You Need if you want to get your Franz on…

Blank Canvas (11 x 14), Black paint, White paint, Paint Brushes

Additional supplies: Choose one of his pieces as inspiration and some music that inspires your creativity!  I threw on some Cat Stevens.

Try it!  It was fun!
