Gold acrylic triangle with black

My latest 10 x 10 inch// 25 x 25 cm acrylic on canvas continues my study of singular-focused images against black negative space. This piece features a heavily textured triangle shape that is entirely golden.

Gold light

I took photos of in the light, and so the shine of the black acrylic paint allows the viewer to also see raised texture floating in the blackness. Here (below) is a shot with the brightness turned down, and the contrast brought up to maximum. The painting has a much sexier look with the adjustments- and I think I will (one day) invest in the services of a professional photographer to capture my work.

What a haunting image

The intent behind this piece was to depict the fading light of a distant dying star. The glow is homogeneous and the texture is as even as I could apply it. It reminds me of a ghostly apparition. Something emerging from the darkness that has an unknown origin.

If I could change something about this piece, it would be the lack of clean and sharp lines. I will work on honing my sculpture skills in the next piece. This style needs to be explored, and I have quite a few ideas I’m very excited to implement.

Thanks for stopping by, and please check in again soon to see what I have been working on.

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.

Turquoise and Gold Splatter Acrylic on Canvas Calming Tropical Art

It is October and Autumn is upon us in Ontario Canada, yet my latest artwork has a warm tropical vibe.

Koral Reef 2018

It reminds me of a golden coral reef scattered across a perfect tropical sea. As with all of my art, I encourage discussion regarding what is depicted in the painting. Abstract art has the opportunity to become much more personal to the viewer/owner when there are no constrictions on the concept of what is being depicted.

The gold and iridescent turquoise in this work provides for a reflective surface, and so depending on the point of incidence (the angle at which the light hits the surface) the vibrancy of the colours can be increased or diminished.

This is a very special piece. It exhibits texture, reflective surface, and an abstract representation of shapes. With a beautiful frame, this piece would add a serene calmness to any cherished space.

It is currently for sale in my Etsy shop, and you can see it by clicking here.

 

Thanks for stopping by.
