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… Read more Gold acrylic triangle with black

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. -S  

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”.

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… Read more Gold Coast Abstract Acrylic

Heaven’s Gate- Acrylic on Canvas Art

  I wanted to feature this piece specifically because it incorporates lots of gold. I like it so much that I gave it a name;(something I have not made a habit of thus far). It is entitled “Heaven’s gate” as this was the first term that came to my mind when it was completed. I used gold leaf, green and blue acrylic on this 12 x 6 inch canvas. The only qualm I have with this work is that it isn’t as large as it deserves to be (in my opinion).… Read more Heaven’s Gate- Acrylic on Canvas Art

Statement Art and Home Decor

  I created these as complimentary pieces using gold leaf. Each measures to be about 36 x 24 inches- quite large for acrylic on canvas. My goal was to create a glimpse into an underwater wold with dark colours blended into light yellows and gold. I have hanged the two pieces in landscape orientation with the piece on the right above the piece on the left in my home: my hope is to create a statement wall of art that will act as a “conversation starter” in our dining area.… Read more Statement Art and Home Decor
