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.

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.

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.

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.

Green, Blue, and Iridescent Silver Acrylic on Canvas abstract art

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.

Jaune Tide: Acrylic on canvas 

Spring is nearly here: however in Southern Ontario, that does not always mean it will be warm outside or without snow.

The weather has been trite with gloomy over cast and threats of blizzards this week; so I decided to create a piece that would be an antithesis to current moods.

20170312_182111.jpg

I call my latest piece: Jaune (yellow) Tide.

I integrated bright yellows, cerulean blues, aqua, and green hues in vibrant splashes on a gallery wrapped canvas. My favourite parts of this piece are the bright expanses of Yellow that bring warmth and happiness to the eye. The aqua is a nice offset against the blue as well.

As with many of my paintings, it can be hanged in any orientation; although it is difficult for me to decide where to sign each piece. I may adopt a symbol for signing my work in the future, so as to reduce the impact of a signature.

Submerged Gold Underwater: Acrylic on Canvas

My latest work is an abstract conception of underwater  (or sunken) gold.

wp-1481085406676.jpg
Gold Underwater sinking to the deepest of depths.

I have been fortunate enough to take a dearly needed vacation and created this during my time away from work.

This is a modest 12 x 24 inch portrait style original work, that features intense contrasts of deep blue and gold. The idea that I worked with was to have blue waves engulf gold as it sunk deep underwater.

The image is a passive commentary on the notion of sunken treasure and opportunities that are out of reach, but still visible.

Much of my art is conceptual, abstract, and utterly beautiful to the eyes of a kindred be holder. I’ve received a lot of interesting feedback on my technique and style from people; and the ultimate response is that I should keep on going!

I think 800 is a nice number for a lifetime goal of art work… 😉
