Black Crows

Black Crows

Acrylic on Stretched Canvas

610mm x 760mm

‘Black Crows’ is an intriguing image painted in a modern style. Yellow, black and purple. 

Painted in a contemporary manner, I was inspired to paint this piece after hearing the crows that are always calling each other in our neighborhood,

It is a little menacing, but intriguing.  I have used many layers of black yellows and ochres with hints of purple to represent the depths of the trees in the bush they reside in.  The crows rule the bush and protect their territory against intruders.

NEW DRESS

Oil, wax medium, paper dress pattern on canvas

I was cleaning out my sewing cabinet and found all my old paper dress patterns.  I thought I might try and include some of the lovely paper patterns in a piece of art.

A very large abstract painting painted in many layers to create texture and depth. All the colours from the under layers show through to provide interesting character.

I have sewn many dresses over the years and it is always exciting to make a new dress. This piece shows the wearer showing off her new evening dress. I have used the paper pattern to create the dress, it has many folds and crevices – lots of texture and the end result looks like a gorgeous green taffeta. 

I never want my pieces to simply be interior décor art but something individual and full of interest.

Hope you enjoy.

BOTANICA

Acrylic on Canvas

101cm x 152cm x 4cm

Large pastel coloured abstract painted in acrylic on canvas. This painting was painted in many layers to create texture and depth.  All the colours from the under layers show through to provide interesting character. Your imagination can interpret the various shapes and contours into flowers, leaves, butterflies, mushrooms, water ponds.

Each individual will see something different in this painting which was my intention, I like to make the viewer work to enjoy the painting.  I don’t want my pieces to simply be interior décor art but something individual and full of interest.

I hope you can see your botanical garden in this piece.

3 Moons in an Orange Sky

Three moons in an orange sky.

29cm x 29cm

This small piece of atmospheric abstract art in orange, purple and green is a very moody and mysterious piece. It is full of character and takes the viewer to unknown places in their mind. The distinctive image brings up memories long forgotten.

Painted in acrylic on a wood.  It has a timber support ton back to hang on wall or it can be lent on a shelf as shelf art.

It is a very small piece of art and is perfect to fit into those places that need just a little colour or interest to make a corner of the house seem interesting.

The piece is signed on the back and is finished with a clear varnish.

Turquoise Static

As mentioned in my previous post, I am going to upload some of my recent paintings. Today’s painting is called Turquoise Static. This was painted in acrylic on a stretched canvas.
I have used my usual technique of laying down multiple layers of paint and many bright colours to create this energetic image – turquoise, orange and white with pops of green and blue.
It literally zings off the canvas. This crisp bright little piece of art was fun to paint.  It makes me happy.
