Introducing something new, “Linear Song”, 20×24 acrylic and oil on gallery wrapped canvas. My one and only 2015 New Year’s resolution is to pursue the world of abstraction. This is my very first one and I am excited to show it to you.
Inspiration came from studying the work of artist Krista Harris. A few years ago I was with a dear friend at Duke Hospital in Durham, North Carolina, I saw a beautiful huge abstract painting by Krista hanging on the hospital wall. It inspired me to do a bit of research, she was born in Charlotte, NC but now lives in Colorado.
“Linear Song” was inspired by a tree in my front yard, I began with a really loose sketch, then started adding layers of acrylic washes, finishing up with oil and gold leaf application. I will continue to paint familiar subjects in my usual style but I look forward to exploring abstraction, please let me know what you think.
