My latest piece represents a dream sequence, which suggests that I dream in violet and gold. This 6 x 12 acrylic on canvas piece definitely captures the uncertainty and mixed expectations often found in dreams. I especially like the marbling effects that are present in the areas where violet/blue meets lighter peach colours. This is the second of my pieces that I have has the pleasant opportunity to photograph in my backyard among my plush hydrangea plants. Looking at the beautiful shape of the leaves, they add a nice contrast… Read more Subtle acrylic blending →
I have returned to colours like aqua and green in my latest work, called No. 19. It is summer here in Southern Ontario, which means that my backyard is the perfect location to take full-light photos of my work. The backyard gets full sun for 6+ hours per day (which can make it very very hot during our 30 + degree Celsius weather). The hydrangea plants serve as a perfect backdrop for smaller pieces. The rich green in the leaves make for an engaging background with lots of depth. … Read more Lovely green, blue, and aqua acrylic →
A short video I did a little while ago in my backyard. The music was also created by me (another fleeting side hobby), and it highlights how I paint my art canvas when I “DIY”my medium. Enjoy, and thank you for stopping by, -S
check out my art canvas tutorial! Part two will be posted later this week.
My latest piece entitled: “The Dark Spot” looks a lot like a rorschach test. It can be hung in any orientation, but I chose to upload it in landscape to that it would be easier to view. I used cerulean blue and slate grey to create contrasting fields that slowly deepen into the dark violet area. This dark spot reminded me of an inky blot. It holds mystery and intrigue. It is definitely one of my recent favourites. Thanks for stopping by, -S Save
My latest piece, No. 18, is a colourful menage of blue, yellow, and orange/red. In this pieces I wanted something that could be hung in any orientation that was pleasing to the eyes. It’s nice to be flexible with design and art. I think that flexibility allows for more enjoyment in life. Thanks for stopping by, -S
More experimentation with texture in my most recent piece called No. 17. Texture is becoming really integral to my style- as is the use of gold and bronze. For me: the use of gold and bright reflective colors in my work represents the sun. In life, similar to the art that imitates it, there should always be a bright spot. Thanks for stopping by, -S Save
I’m back at it again with my smaller sized canvas pieces. In this piece I used layering and marbling. The gold is a nice effect- as it draws the eye by creating a reflective/ metallic look. I’ve also decided on a more prominent and “swirly” signature to sign my work. I should be taking credit for my creative side and making my name known. Thanks for stopping by, -S
