This is part of an ongoing series of abstract ink paintings exploring color, light, and shapes. I created this piece in several layers. Although these paintings are flat in texture, they still have a lot of visual depth and have a 3D effect in person. To me, this one conjures up abstract images of butterflies overlapping each other. I was thinking of stained glass while working with the painting and incorporated black to mimic the feel of it.
The Yupo paper that I used is a unique synthetic paper, machine-made in the USA of 100% polypropylene. It is waterproof, stain resistant, and extremely strong and durable. It resists tearing and buckling and lays flat. Because of the non-absorbant nature of the paper, no white paint was used. Please note that all computer monitors are different. The colors in this painting may differ ever so slightly from what you see on your screen.
I have chosen not to sign this piece on the front to give more freedom when hanging it, as it can be hung vertically, horizontally, and upside down from what is pictured.
I am a Houston, TX based artist. My paintings revolve around themes of the mind and body, plants/nature, and expressive abstraction. I am always trying out new mediums but I mostly use oil paint, watercolors, gouache, and alcohol ink. I received my Bachelors degrees in both Painting and Photography in May 2010, and I completed my Masters in Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in May 2012. Creating is a necessity for me, and I don't know who I would be without it. I crave that artistic release. I love connecting with people through my art, because each piece I create is a little part of me. I hope you like what you see, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to reach out!
