Companion Dark and Light Blue Acrylic Abstract Art on Canvas

My latest work has two parts. I spent twice the usual amount of time to paint these two pieces at the same time. My goal here was to use the same colour scheme to carry across two landscapes.

In the end, I created “Terror Beach” (right) and “Call out to the Universe” (left).

When set side by side, the sweeping brush strokes seem to begin in the lower right hand corner and fly out to the left.

The dripping violet that emerges from the conical horizon in “Terror Beach” creates an eerie setting. There is a ghostly apparition of a sun or moon above the mountains that does little to illuminate the texture rich darkness that encroaches from the eastern skyline. And yet, somehow, there is a mysterious shape below the waters that edge the mountainous horizon.

“Call Out to the Universe” has a similar mysterious message; begging the question of who calls out to whom in the vast emptiness? An unfamiliar object is answering the call.

This recent work was a thrill for me. I enjoyed the story telling aspect as much as creating the actual painting itself.

Sunflower TOO abstract acrylic

I don’t love this piece (speaking honestly).

although  I had very reasonable intentions, it did not turn out as I had expected.

I am a harsh and rigid critic of my own work.

I think that it is important to appreciate your good and bad pieces as an artist. It is a part of any journey to becoming something: learning from your mistakes and planning out what to do better next time.

It will be a great feeling to cover up some of these with gesso.

thanks for stopping by,
