Alluring and attractive to some, a pest to others. Ivy is the archetype of an insouciant existence. This painting measures 20" x 16". It was completed on January 7, 2015.
I create abstract/surreal oil paintings using techniques that draw largely on the wet on wet technique made popular by Bob Ross. This influence can be seen especially in the backgrounds. The abstract concepts are placed and created in a more realistic environment. The focal object(s) are created with textures such as rocky surfaces or smooth organic shapes with an attention to lighting and shading that can sometimes be absent from abstract paintings. I also tend to work in definitive color schemes such as reds, blues, browns, etc.
