Black space acrylic with green and silver

My latest piece is entitled “Nights over Algonquin part 2”. It is part of a series I did with a deep-space black background.

The concept was to create a piece where the colours would jump out and create a sense of excitement.

Neon permanent green flows along the bottom of the piece as the dependable earth cradles us. A sea of blue is nestled within the fields of green as well; but, what I enjoy most about this piece is the sky.

In my eyes, the gorgeous blendings and splashings of silver, blue, and pearlescent violet against the deep Mars Black background remind me of an surrealistically neon light. The colours are almost alien, yet still emit a feeling of familiarity. The result is an excitement-filled piece that allows me to discover something new to love about it each time I lay my eyes upon it.

January Abstracts

My latest piece is warm, golden, azure blue-esque, iridescent and metallic. (The hour that I write this is a very late one, so bear with me.)

This piece is small, yet the impact is big. Deep layers of varying shades of blue act as the backdrop of this work. Looking deeply, one can observe a light sheen of translucent turquoise that has an ever so slight iridescent quality.

The concept of this piece began with a desire to have a richly layered blue foundation for another rich, yet contrasting , metallic gold acrylic pour. I think this piece is another excellent example of the participatory feature of my work. The viewer of the work is the most important decipher-er of what it means. I can tell you what it means to me; however it is only a mere suggestion to the next set of eyes.

Soft Blue Sky and a Golden Sun

My latest painting is another example of my study of the sun. It features light whisps of glossy clouds as the backdrop of a pulsing golden sun.

I used texturing compounds to add variety to the surface of this painting. It has a muted style that sets it apart from many of my other paintings on this subject.

 

Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate your comments and I look forward to reading more.

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.

Please comment and leave your thoughts below.

Cream-Swirl of Moss Green Acrylic on Canvas

My latest piece was an unexpected development of blending and contrasting colours. Using acrylic pour techniques, hunter green and moss are suspended in each other to give the appearance of cream meeting coffee.

The left and bottom edges have paint splatter to amp up the drama and turbulence of the environment, while yellow specks of sunlight peek through the dense cloud space. The title of this work is simply G.C.

My favourite part of the work is seen above- the meeting of the light creamy green with dark green. The figure is ghostly, and resembles a human face that seems to possibly be aghast. At its heart is a void of cerulean blue- as if an explosion removed what was there before.

I love the abstract art because it allows the viewer to decide the story of what they see. I am continuously impressed by the imaginative responses I get from people about what they see in my artwork. It is truly amazing to reflect on the power of those imaginations, and also how the experiences or mindsets of people influence what they see.
