Gold, blue and white acrylic

My latest work is entitled: “Father Out Stretch My Hands”. It is an eclecticly blended piece that features navy blue, gold and smoky white. The abstract image has a “heavenly” feel to it, and reminds me of two hands reaching out over a distance to touch each other. It is not quite as sophisticated as Michaelangelo, but the beauty of art is that what you see is what it is. I like the meditative aspect of this piece. The swirling texture of acrylic was achieved by using a palette knife… Read more Gold, blue and white acrylic

Ocean Abstract Acrylic with Gold

My latest piece is entitled “Violent Weather”. Size 11″ x 12″ // 28 cm x 30.5 cm This abstract ocean landscape shows a violent storm wherein waves crash against each other amidst a dark and treacherous sky. Swirling patterns of dark storms lurk in the background, and as a result, the waves are exceptionally high. At the peak of the tallest wave, water pierces through the barrier that separates the scene from calmer sunlit tranquility. The break in the barrier allows glimpses of majestic gold to cascade outward and spill… Read more Ocean Abstract Acrylic with Gold

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  

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… Read more Companion Dark and Light Blue Acrylic Abstract Art on Canvas

Green and Blue Blended Acrylic on Sun Canvas Art

I frequently represent the sun in my art work. It adds a heavy presence and deep meaning to my art. Sometimes the subject is an abstract of an earthly landscape, and other times not. One of the things that I enjoy the most about creating art is the feedback I get from other people describing what they see. Art is truly as subjective as they say, and so I think the meaning, impression and other descriptors of a piece must change depending on who is looking.  I love the sun.… Read more Green and Blue Blended Acrylic on Sun Canvas Art

Playing around with texture in acrylic paint

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.

Sun rings in Acrylic on canvas

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    

A blissful underwater acrylic scene

Lately, I have been working with a lot of pastel greens and examining how they interact with deep cerulean blue in my acrylic technique. When I say “lately” I’m specifically talking about the past few days since summer has arrived here in Southern Ontario, Canada. Although my initial entry into the art world began with my desire to create large artists canvas at infinitesimally cheaper costs than retail; I have become preoccupied with smaller pieces (6″ x 12″) in a rectangular shape. By the end of July, I am hoping… Read more A blissful underwater acrylic scene
