Underwater Volcanic Pressure- Acrylic on Canvas

  I have been working with themes lately. I find that having a theme in mind keeps a person like me much more on track. As a creative-type, my process can be wandering due to my constant desire to explore, learn, and try new things. This is my latest work, entitled: “Underwater Volcanic Pressure”     I wanted to capture an imagined view of magma trapped between two giant tectonic plates, by blending blues greens and bright orange with yellow. The size is a bit small at 12 x 24… Read more Underwater Volcanic Pressure- Acrylic on Canvas

Sun in Repose: Acrylic on Canvas

I have always been in awe of the sun. (Not unlike most other creatures on this earth of course.) One of my favourite comics features a short story about a personified celestial being (the sun) falling in love with a woman from the planet he orbited. You can read more about it here.   I created this acrylic on canvas piece in two parts (diptych). I wanted it to be a three part (triptych), but alas, when creativity strikes you must not wait too long to capture it. In order to… Read more Sun in Repose: Acrylic on Canvas

Heaven’s Gate- Acrylic on Canvas Art

  I wanted to feature this piece specifically because it incorporates lots of gold. I like it so much that I gave it a name;(something I have not made a habit of thus far). It is entitled “Heaven’s gate” as this was the first term that came to my mind when it was completed. I used gold leaf, green and blue acrylic on this 12 x 6 inch canvas. The only qualm I have with this work is that it isn’t as large as it deserves to be (in my opinion).… Read more Heaven’s Gate- Acrylic on Canvas Art

Statement Art and Home Decor

  I created these as complimentary pieces using gold leaf. Each measures to be about 36 x 24 inches- quite large for acrylic on canvas. My goal was to create a glimpse into an underwater wold with dark colours blended into light yellows and gold. I have hanged the two pieces in landscape orientation with the piece on the right above the piece on the left in my home: my hope is to create a statement wall of art that will act as a “conversation starter” in our dining area.… Read more Statement Art and Home Decor

Art in Motion: Creating the Weeping Beach

Art in Motion https://youtu.be/zq3_6K4mfI4 via @YouTube   Here we have a simple two panel divider that was designed as a gift for a child. The concept I had when creating this was to have two frames stretched with canvas joined together with a thin hinge. The result is to have an open and closable apparatus that features a fun and imaginative design. When the piece is half closed it can be used as a play/dressing screen for a small child as it will stand on its own, yet is still… Read more Art in Motion: Creating the Weeping Beach
