This acrylic abstract original canvas painting has plenty of personality. Along with fluid acrylic blue and black paints, I also used thicker acrylic white and gold paints - giving this piece texture and depth. One of the photos shows a great example of a "metallic" look in one area where the blue and black paints mixed in an interesting way. The way the paints have mixed together is moving, complex and capturing.
This painting really captures my rainy day mood. Which may be blue, but I actually love rainy days. The kind with thunder and lightening. The kind you get lost in. The kind that swallows you up.
I have a severe love for creativity. Sure, I have my “professional career” that suffocates every single aspect and ounce of creativity I try to splash in, but my thoughts always seem to wander to some form of art. All of the art. So many different kinds of art ideas that I feel like I’m almost quitting one mental project when I move on to thinking of the next project I dream up. I love to sing. I love to draw. I love to play the piano and guitar. I love to pretend to know what I’m doing with calligraphy when I doodle, but really I’m consistently doing that whole “thicken the downward slope” trick and, so sue me, I love it. And paint. I love to paint. Nik
