Subtle acrylic blending

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 against the colour variety found in this piece, entitled No. 20.

Lovely green, blue, and aqua acrylic

I have returned to colours like aqua and green in my latest work, called No. 19.

imageIt 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.

“The name really caught on to me once I finished this piece. So experimental. Sharp contrasting blue sky against eclipsing doom: a massive jellyfish. I worked with ink here for the strong black lines across the horizon. I wanted the image to evoke a sense that this large object was going to overcome all structures and life in its way. The buildings are made to be like melting objects, similar to a nuclear attack.” –

Art in Motion: Creating the Weeping Beach

Here we have a simple two panel divider that was designed as a gift for a child. The concept I had when creating this was to have two frames stretched with canvas joined together with a thin hinge. The result is to have an open and closable apparatus that features a fun and imaginative design. When the piece is half closed it can be used as a play/dressing screen for a small child as it will stand on its own, yet is still lightweight enough to not be dangerous if knocked over.

That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by!
