I haven't posted any of my art here before, but I'm really proud of this piece. It's acrylics on canvas and took about 20-25 min to do. I'd love to know what you guys think!

I think it is LOVELY. And I'm shocked that it only took you 20 minutes. You work fast!

lol well i can't really explain how i paint, i just slap paint on the canvas and add colors where i feel, just kinda go with the flow XD but as far as the splatters go, i use rubbing alcohol and splatter it on while the paint is still wet

That's usually my method too, but haven't gotten any results like yours.  I haven't tried rubbing alcohol... but have gotten similar spots by just leaving paintywater on it.
