Every so often I like to change things up and create abstract art. I like the freedom and exploration of the process. The past few weeks I have been working on two mixed media paintings simultaneously. Working on these paintings felt like a tug of war, a love hate relationship, a labor of love with lots of juicy layers.
Life in abstract: Acrylic paint, graphite, varnish on handmade wood frame.
Strange lands: Acrylic paint, graphite, varnish on handmade wood frame
The stages of my painting. The inspiration for this one came from a walk in my neighborhood, I was drawn to this gritty old house and stormy clouds above. I took a photograph and later decided to paint it.
I used acrylic paint on a 20×20 gallery wrapped canvas. It took me about 4 days to complete, on and off painting a few hours a day.
This is the photograph that inspired me, I did tweak the image to adjust to my composition and style of painting.
