A Night Sky With Silver Stars

As abstract as my work has been lately; every time I look at this (one of my latest), I think of the view at night near a lake and a clear starry sky. It is a very small piece (6 x12), but I continue to become lost in it. Thanks for stopping by,   -S

Black Sky: Nebula Acrylic Painting

When I completed this piece, I was sure that I had something special. My nebula perfectly captured the direction I had intended: a light blue swirl, beautiful deep burgundy, complimenting violet fields. The look and feel of space. Thanks for stopping by, -S

Ocean Currents..Acrylic Art

One of my fixations of late, has been to capture my impressions of Earth from the viewpoint of someone looking down from space. Hours spent looking at Google Maps has helped with this (of course). Pictured above is my latest piece: an abstract impression of islands floating in a clear and serene blue sea. Although it is difficult to see in the photo- there is also some slight relief in this piece. You can see slightly raised lines in the shape of a circle. I enjoyed the use and mixture… Read more Ocean Currents..Acrylic Art

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

Abstract Art- Archipelago

  I have been practicing new techniques with my abstract art. Swirls, clouds, and other effects are what I have been trying to achieve, and as seen above, my pursuits have been pretty good. This piece is different because not only have I tried to communicate familiar shapes, but I have experimented with the shape and dimensions of the canvas. (Notice that the top right corner is irregular, and creates an inclined shape.) I still try to focus on effective colour composition- as this is the reason why I started… Read more Abstract Art- Archipelago
