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

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.

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

Art in Motion: Creating the Weeping Beach

Art in Motion https://youtu.be/zq3_6K4mfI4 via @YouTube   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… Read more Art in Motion: Creating the Weeping Beach
