Gold Coast Abstract Acrylic

My latest 13 inch x 13 inch// 33 cm x 33 cm artwork is an abstract birds-eye-perspective of islands. It is entitled “Gold Coastal”.

The scattering of lush green islands across a deep cerulean blue coastline is pleasing to the eye. It is easy to find relaxation as the eyes travel from island to island; imagining the people, places, and things that live on each one.

I used real 10K gold leaf to emphasize three areas of the archipelago setting. For me, there is always power in trilogy as it carries a deep personal meaning. There are darker shimmering layers throughout the piece to emphasize the complexity of the shoreline. I limited my use of relief in this piece, although I think a bit more texture would have been a good replacement to add grains of detail along the coasts.

Subtle acrylic blending

My latest piece represents a dream sequence, which suggests that I dream in violet and gold.

This 6 x 12 acrylic on canvas piece definitely captures the uncertainty and mixed expectations often found in dreams. I especially like the marbling effects that are present in the areas where violet/blue meets lighter peach colours.

This is the second of my pieces that I have has the pleasant opportunity to photograph in my backyard among my plush hydrangea plants. Looking at the beautiful shape of the leaves, they add a nice contrast against the colour variety found in this piece, entitled No. 20.

Lovely green, blue, and aqua acrylic

I have returned to colours like aqua and green in my latest work, called No. 19.

imageIt is summer here in Southern Ontario, which means that my backyard is the perfect location to take full-light photos of my work. The backyard gets full sun for 6+ hours per day (which can make it very very hot during our 30 + degree Celsius weather).

The hydrangea plants serve as a perfect backdrop for smaller pieces. The rich green in the leaves make for an engaging background with lots of depth.

Dark spots and ink blots in acrylic

My latest piece entitled: “The Dark Spot” looks a lot like a rorschach test.

It can be hung in any orientation, but I chose to upload it in landscape to that it would be easier to view. I used cerulean blue and slate grey to create contrasting fields that slowly deepen into the dark violet area. This dark spot reminded me of an inky blot. It holds mystery and intrigue. It is definitely one of my recent favourites.

Blending primary colours with acrylic paint

My latest piece, No. 18, is a colourful menage of blue, yellow, and orange/red.

In this pieces I wanted something that could be hung in any orientation that was pleasing to the eyes.
It’s nice to be flexible with design and art. I think that flexibility allows for more enjoyment in life.
