Ready to Hang
Ah, the warmth of summer and the feeling of being sun kissed as you spend time at the pool, on the beach or anywhere just being outside. I chose the title of this piece because I could feel the sun's rays splash across the sky and down on the trees and instantly remembered the feeling of being sun kissed.
I created this piece at a time in my life where I now need and want as much positive feedback, positive feelings, positive relations - getting rid of the negative and surrounding myself with love, compassion, passion and that instant moment of feeling blessed when sun kissed.
My inspiration in creating this piece is mostly from personal experiences and memories of good times in the summer. And as the sun and light reflect off of surfaces in water droplets, dew, or any shimmering light, I always feel like I need to capture that look. This abstract, contemporary, modern landscape is full of life, full of color, and full of energy. This painting has about 12 layers of paint and some texture, so the canvas is mounted on a heavy duty frame with extra support. The sides are painted black and the art is ready for hanging.
