Ready to Hang
These paintings our rich in texture and tropical colors. The paintings were created with acrylic paint with the use of a palette knife. The 16"x20" paintings are on stretched canvas, with wood frame backing. Sides are painted white and ready to be hung. The 3x4 foot paintings are un-stretched. Both sizes have two final coats of high gloss varnish.
I like to use vivid, bright colors. Warm against cool tones. Rich colors against muted hues. Heavy texture utilizing a palette knife. Always look forward to those successful mistakes I work quickly and vigorously. I work dynamically, but as part of my working method, after a few days I bring out the picture again to emphasize/highlight certain details.
In my college years I had studied fine art and graphic design by attending Art Center College of Design, Cal State Fullerton and Fullerton City College. For the past few years my realization lies in abstract art. With liquid color the possibilities are endless. The direction of color and design can open up all sane and insane emotions with excitement or calmness to stir the emotions of the viewer. Painting is a wonderful journey not always knowing where it will lead. A romantic painting speaks to the heart and soul of the viewer.
