Ready to Hang
THE SECOND PIECE IN MY "BASALT" COLLECTION. THIS PIECE IS HEAVILY TEXTURED WITH ACRYLIC MEDIUM AND DOZENS OF LAYERS OF ACRYLIC PAINT APPLIED WITH A PALLET KNIFE. AS WITH THE FIRST IN THE SERIES, I LOVE THE WAY THAT THE TEXTURE REMINDS ME OF BASALT ROCK FORMATIONS. THIS ORGANIC YET MODERN PIECE HAS BEEN FINISHED WITH TWO COATS OF PROTECTIVE GLOSS VARNISH WHICH BRINGS THE SHADES OF BLUE TO LIFE AND HILIGHTING THE SMALL ACCENT COLORS OF RED, YELLOWS, GREENS, AND ORANGE. THE SIDES ARE FINISHED IN A VERY DARK BLUE AND THE PAINTING IS READY TO BE HUNG IN YOUR FAVORITE ROOM! All of my works are signed and titled on the back so they may be hung horizontally or vertically. You will receive a certificate of authenticity signed and dated by the artist.
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.
