More Blue Tape Paintings

Maria Robledo sent this instagram of a blue tape fish her husband Holton Rower made. Holton has long been “painting” with blue painter’s tape, most notably in his yearly clowning visits to Russia with Patch Adams to cheer up children in hospitals and orphanages. It is an easy, effective way to transform the walls of dreary institutions.

I first fell in love with blue tape art when I saw this abstract tape painting on Stork Loves Man years ago, followed by this visionary one done on a window.

The beauty of blue tape, of course, is that it makes for wonderful line drawings that are easily removed within a couple of months. Here’s one Holton did in a few seconds just before leaving my house after a visit. The bird was a sort of welcome blessing on my new space.

After a while, the bird seemed a bit busy for the simple room and I needed a vision change. I photographed Holton’s painting so I could always spark a memory of it. Then I started stripping it away…until I got to this (which I left).

Blue painter’s tape comes in a variety of widths and colors. I’m currently smitten with Blue Painter’s Tape in… green.
