My latest work is a gorgeous abstract that took on many twists and turns during the creation process.
Title: “The Peacock”
Size: 24 x 13 Inches\\
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
The peacock is an abstract painting that features bright greens and deep blues. Dark and simple outlines create a delicate shape that exuberantly defines a swan like bird.
The hazy effect of the background colours preach a style that I hope to revisit one day. I love painting like this, and the gentleness of the colours blending together is so tranquil to practice.
I enjoy this area of the painting: there are bright blue splash-like brush strokes over top of a black field reminiscent of water that the proud peacock will splash in.
The four sides were painted black to accentuate the colourfulness of this piece. It exists better as a colourful piece with black sides to tone down its presence in a room.
It’s one of my favourite pieces: I see it as an expression of a thought only Stephanie could have. Whether or not that follows in the solipsistic tradition, I am unsure. I try to stay in the middle of the road when it comes to philosophic concepts these days.
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.
I have returned to colours like aqua and green in my latest work, called No. 19.
It 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.
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.
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.
