Ready to Hang
As an artist, I sometimes want to depict tangible objects in an abstract way, create landscapes or sunsets still recognizable, but also very abstract. But now I want to really express my emotions with the paint and with color and get it on the canvas without contemplating the interpretation of the work. I just want to get the emotion on the canvas. That means 'letting go'. So this is the first time in a very long time, that I have just let it go and painted what I was feeling and I loved the entire experience. So here is Pool Party! because even though summer is ending there's got to be time for just one more party! This abstract, contemporary art is made of 3 canvases and displayed here separated by about 3/4" just to illustrate an example of how it can be displayed. Each of the 3 canvases is 16" wide x 20" high and 1.5" thick. All the sides are painted black and all surfaces covered with a satin varnish. Each painting is ready to hang!
