My latest piece was an unexpected development of blending and contrasting colours. Using acrylic pour techniques, hunter green and moss are suspended in each other to give the appearance of cream meeting coffee.
The left and bottom edges have paint splatter to amp up the drama and turbulence of the environment, while yellow specks of sunlight peek through the dense cloud space. The title of this work is simply G.C.
My favourite part of the work is seen above- the meeting of the light creamy green with dark green. The figure is ghostly, and resembles a human face that seems to possibly be aghast. At its heart is a void of cerulean blue- as if an explosion removed what was there before.
I love the abstract art because it allows the viewer to decide the story of what they see. I am continuously impressed by the imaginative responses I get from people about what they see in my artwork. It is truly amazing to reflect on the power of those imaginations, and also how the experiences or mindsets of people influence what they see.
Thank you for checking in. Comment below and let me know what you see.
My latest artwork is both relaxing and bold. Cerulean blue is contrasted with a sharp yellow line that spans the face of the piece.
The piece is entitled Covered Path and features a semi-obscured bright yellow glimpse of a sun reflecting off of a stormy ocean surface.
Splashes of cerulean blue, white, and turquoise give life and movement.
The arctic white bursts out like an explosion into bright yellow sunspots.
A small piece of gold leaf adds a reflective and eye catching aspect to the work. When the sun catches this piece, this tiny piece of gold acts as a reminder to stay positive and to cultivate gratitude.
The white splatter spot brings the piece together, serving as a reminder that calm, tranquility, and peace is ever present in the universe.
My latest piece is ultra calm and tranquil. Continuing with the 13 x 13 inch canvas size series, I painted and poured this acrylic on canvas abstract using premium heavy duty cotton canvas stretched over thick 2×2 wood.
The title is Homonym and I feel like I can just fall into it..
The top of the piece is an abstract setting of the sun cascading over water that is becoming increasingly rough. There are wisps of grey storm clouds co-mingling with the sun- perhaps to ultimately overpower it.
There is movement in this piece, yet mysteriously a light triangle coloured object is adrift within it. I love how this one turned out!
Thank you for checking in to see my latest abstract acrylic artwork entitled “Ovation”. This 13 x 13 inch (33 cm x 33 cm) piece was created during a celebratory mood. I stretched premium 100% cotton canvas over thick 2 x 2 inch wood, and double primed the paint surface with gesso.
I used acrylic pouring and splattering techniques to illustrate surprise and joy. I tried a new technique by allowing base layers to dry, and adding light rose and pale pink blob-patterns that have a pearlescent glaze over top.
Gold highlights represent an excitement that contains prestige. Deep red splatter marks contrast throughout the piece signifying dramatic allure. The colours dance with each other deep into the background as this piece is examined closely, telling a story of triumph over drama.
At the crown of the golden triumph, six gold points lay atop a humble rose flourish. As a accent piece, Ovation is an attention-grabbing artistic statement.
My latest piece is a celestial depiction of a star collapsing into a black hole. The star is made of reams of silver and gold metallic paint. I used blending and pouring techniques to combine the dark and light areas.
The above shot was taken as the first layer of the piece dried. You can see the reflection of my light in the surface of the poured blue acrylic.
The endless abyss of blue holds a dark depth at its heart, and you can almost see the ghost-like human face that sits in the background like an echo.
Thank you all for your comments, and as always, thank you for visiting.
My latest work has two parts. I spent twice the usual amount of time to paint these two pieces at the same time. My goal here was to use the same colour scheme to carry across two landscapes.
In the end, I created “Terror Beach” (right) and “Call out to the Universe” (left).
When set side by side, the sweeping brush strokes seem to begin in the lower right hand corner and fly out to the left.
The dripping violet that emerges from the conical horizon in “Terror Beach” creates an eerie setting. There is a ghostly apparition of a sun or moon above the mountains that does little to illuminate the texture rich darkness that encroaches from the eastern skyline. And yet, somehow, there is a mysterious shape below the waters that edge the mountainous horizon.
“Call Out to the Universe” has a similar mysterious message; begging the question of who calls out to whom in the vast emptiness? An unfamiliar object is answering the call.
This recent work was a thrill for me. I enjoyed the story telling aspect as much as creating the actual painting itself.

Recently, I completed a commissioned art work that features green, silver, and blue acrylic.
Remembering the old advice I received once: “If you want to be good at something you must always practice, practice practice!”
As a result, I have been using store bought canvas for my day to day practice. When I am ready to create a higher quality piece, I still prefer to use the canvas that I custom make. When I make my own canvas I use 100% heavy cotton canvas, I stretch it over thick 2 x inch wood, and I triple prime the canvas with gesso.
Unless an artist is paying for the highest premium canvas available, the level of quality I get from making my own canvas is unparalleled. As I have mentioned before, when an artist is unrestricted by the high costs of supplies and materials their creativity is able to reach heights that the average person can only dream of.
That being said, my latest commissioned work:
This untitled piece is 10 x 10 inches and has been painted on store bought canvas.
It is essentially a blend of colours with sharp splatters of silver. This piece is very abstract and was mainly a focus of colour composition rather than form.
It is a slight departure from my usual work, but I really enjoyed the way it developed.
