A canvas and paint are all you need to make this modern art for pennies.
Rim the edge of the bucket with paint. Turn the bucket over and press the rim on the canvas. Don't worry about drips as they add to the effect. Recoat the bucket and continue making circles.
Use a foam cup and another color to add smaller circles. Let dry. Seal with polyurethane.
