ABSTRACT IN BLACK AND WHITE II is the third in my black and white series. It is a highly textural piece that came about by layering black and grey over shades of white over and over again. I used acrylic medium and marble dust to create variations in the translucency and texture of the paint. I am constantly learning and studying the technique of artists that I admire. I used a technique of Franz Kline- drawing an abstract in pencil and then focusing in on one small area making that the subject of this piece. I will include part of the original pencil sketch with the work. The work is signed on the front and signed and dated on the back. It has been given a coat of archival semi matte varnish for protection. A certificate of authenticity will accompany the work.

I grew up in the San Juan islands of Washington State. Surrounded by a rich art culture, I developed a love for painting. Both self taught and informally educated, I primarily work in acrylic but from time to time you might find a watercolor or mixed medium piece. My works are not currently shown in a brick and mortar gallery, I have preferred to sell pieces through referral. When I discovered the Vango platform, I was thrilled. It seems to be a perfect venue to share my pieces with those looking for an original piece of art to bejewell their home or office. Artworks are like flowers, we should surround ourselves with them as they bring us joy. Bright and abstract makes me the happiest, so I hope that you will find a piece that can bring a smile to your face each time you pass it by. My art now hangs in private collections all over the US in cities such as New York, LA, Washington DC, Boston, Austin, Denver and San Juan Puerto Rico.
