Black space acrylic with green and silver

My latest piece is entitled “Nights over Algonquin part 2”. It is part of a series I did with a deep-space black background.

The concept was to create a piece where the colours would jump out and create a sense of excitement.

Neon permanent green flows along the bottom of the piece as the dependable earth cradles us. A sea of blue is nestled within the fields of green as well; but, what I enjoy most about this piece is the sky.

In my eyes, the gorgeous blendings and splashings of silver, blue, and pearlescent violet against the deep Mars Black background remind me of an surrealistically neon light. The colours are almost alien, yet still emit a feeling of familiarity. The result is an excitement-filled piece that allows me to discover something new to love about it each time I lay my eyes upon it.

January Abstracts

My latest piece is warm, golden, azure blue-esque, iridescent and metallic. (The hour that I write this is a very late one, so bear with me.)

This piece is small, yet the impact is big. Deep layers of varying shades of blue act as the backdrop of this work. Looking deeply, one can observe a light sheen of translucent turquoise that has an ever so slight iridescent quality.

The concept of this piece began with a desire to have a richly layered blue foundation for another rich, yet contrasting , metallic gold acrylic pour. I think this piece is another excellent example of the participatory feature of my work. The viewer of the work is the most important decipher-er of what it means. I can tell you what it means to me; however it is only a mere suggestion to the next set of eyes.

Mountain Abstract Landscape Three Piece Series

During an experimental session of making art canvas, I tried my hand with using thin and lighter weight wood to build small 5 x 7 inch frames. My intention was to design something that had commercial applications; and right now in the online art world it is simple to make small art pieces that can be easily shipped at a minimal cost.

 

My three piece art series is a cerulean blue and gold set of abstract landscapes entitled:

01 Sea Breeze
02 Sea Breeze
03 Sea Breeze

The first is a rocky scene.

The second has points.

And the third is simply the sun, alone against the world. I used acrylic texturizer and pouring techniques to layer hues of blue over top other darker hues. The result is a backdrop with uneven colours that look like an abstract sky. “Stephanie’s sky” as I like to think of it.

Electric Yellow Acrylic Abstract on Canvas

My latest painting is a splendid mix of bright yellow, iridescent blue, and white. There is a surge of excitement in this piece, and some mystery as well.

20181114_203832.jpg

As of yet, this painting is unnamed, which may as well be since I feel like it will have a short time with me as its owner. The eclectic blends and pops of colour on this unnamed work make it ideal for digitizing– a run through on Photoshop would produce some interesting lines that are invisible to the naked eye.

I feel like there is a story being expressed here- the bright yellow is the base layer, excitement and uncontrolled raw delight. The Id.  Over head, clouds of opaque blue close in, partially encompassing our view of the excitement. Protective. Finally, white snow splashes and swirls at parts encroach over it’s lesser layer. Reason and altruism.

A few blue explosions that look mysterious in their origins remind us to expand once in a while.

As always, I love comments!

Blue Abstract Art with Yellow Acrylic

My latest artwork is both relaxing and bold. Cerulean blue is contrasted with a sharp yellow line that spans the face of the piece.

Covered Path Acrylic on Canvas by Stephanie Konu

 

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.

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.

Blue Ocean Acrylic on Canvas

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!

Dark Navy Blue, Silver and Gold Metallic Abstract Acrylic on Canvas Outer Space Mood Art

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.
