Pink and Gold Acrylic Art

Welcome back!

Thank you for checking in to see my latest abstract acrylic artwork entitled “Ovation”. This 13 x 13 inch (33 cm x 33 cm) piece was created during a celebratory mood. I stretched premium 100% cotton canvas over thick 2 x 2 inch wood, and double primed the paint surface with gesso.

Ovation-Full view- Gold, Pink, Deep Red abstract art

I used acrylic pouring and splattering techniques to illustrate surprise and joy. I tried a new technique by allowing base layers to dry, and adding light rose and pale pink blob-patterns that have a pearlescent glaze over top.

Gold highlights represent an excitement that contains prestige. Deep red splatter marks contrast throughout the piece signifying dramatic allure. The colours dance with each other deep into the background as this piece is examined closely, telling a story of triumph over drama.

At the crown of the golden triumph, six gold points lay atop a humble rose flourish. As a accent piece, Ovation is an attention-grabbing artistic statement.

The GTA Home and Reno Show-Things I loved and hated

Pink and cream Room Design at the GTA Home and Reno Show

I really enjoyed this room set up at the show this weekend. Although a scene like this would not survive for more than 10 minutes at my house; I love the idea of it!

The pink walls have a cream coloured cloud effect (possibly a wallpaper appliqué- otherwise this would be a painstaking paint effect).  The colours on the walls allow a calming effect on the eye. Gold and beige accents also help with this calming effect. I think for a small space (a reading room, or small condo) this room would definitely become a favourite.

Feminine waves taken too far- Hated it

On the other hand- this pink and feminine scene was terrible for me. I hate everything about it: the faux pink fur chair covers; the use of blue in a swirl pattern for the walls with pastel pink; and of course the over use of chrome as an accent colour. The execution is all wrong: perhaps instead of a tall chrome lamp, it would have been better to have a sconce, or geometric light pendant with a matte silver finish? Just my thoughts…

From behind a glass: an abstract landscape in oil on canvas. Browns, greens, and greys.

I liked this large abstract piece: the colours used are unexpected, but still work well to create a lovely landscape scene. I like the use of grey at the foreground as I imagine it to be fog rolling in over farmland during an early morning.

My favourite piece from the show: a blue and green charger with gold flecks and an earthy brown border.

If I could choose the colour of the eyes I stare into for the rest of my life it would be the colours shown here (above). Ah, well maybe that is an overstatement, however I could truly stare at this for hours. Absolutely one of the most memorable things I found at the show.
