This piece is inspired by the work of a few other abstract artists. I like the separation of colors and textures within the golden ratio. Some critics may think that it’s a gimmick or trick but there’s no denying the effect it has on the viewer.
After applying texture using flexible modelling paste I separated the sections with lines using a palette knife. I then chose a careful set of complimentary colors or earth tones that tend to look nice on any wall. The red line which creates most of the separation was originally yellow but I felt it needed something with a little more impact so I included red. The line in the middle was kept imperfect with white filling in the gaps that blend the two sides nicely.
I am a self-representing artist in Southern Colorado and have been involved in graphic and digital art for 20 years. For the past few years I have been focusing on fine art and painting (especially abstracts and landscapes). My upcoming works will include purely abstract pieces as well as abstract infused landscapes and cityscapes. When an image comes to my mind I have to create it or it will become an obsession. Painting and creating art is very liberating. It is perhaps one of the most natural forms of expression that I use to share my own unique perspective.
