Electric Yellow Acrylic Abstract on Canvas

My latest painting is a splendid mix of bright yellow, iridescent blue, and white. There is a surge of excitement in this piece, and some mystery as well. As of yet, this painting is unnamed, which may as well be since I feel like it will have a short time with me as its owner. The eclectic blends and pops of colour on this unnamed work make it ideal for digitizing– a run through on Photoshop would produce some interesting lines that are invisible to the naked eye. I feel… Read more Electric Yellow Acrylic Abstract on Canvas

Cream-Swirl of Moss Green Acrylic on Canvas

My latest piece was an unexpected development of blending and contrasting colours. Using acrylic pour techniques, hunter green and moss are suspended in each other to give the appearance of cream meeting coffee.

DIY Art: bright colour and faces

My latest work is a colourful study of phantom faces. I wondered what it might be like to draw faces on canvas with India ink, and have them obscured by blended acrylic, like clouds of colourful milk in coffee.

I hung this 10 x 10 inch piece on the wall near my side of the bed. The… Read more DIY Art: bright colour and faces

Jaune Tide: Acrylic on canvasĀ 

Spring is nearly here: however in Southern Ontario, that does not always mean it will be warm outside or without snow. The weather has been trite with gloomy over cast and threats of blizzards this week; so I decided to create a piece that would be an antithesis to current moods. I call my latest piece: Jaune (yellow) Tide. I integrated bright yellows, cerulean blues, aqua, and green hues in vibrant splashes on a gallery wrapped canvas. My favourite parts of this piece are the bright expanses of Yellow that… Read more Jaune Tide: Acrylic on canvasĀ 

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.
