If you view the slideshow below, you can catch a bit of my artistic process. I first paint a brightly colored layer of movement and color and then distress it, repaint it, distress it, repaint it, sand it and then put a matte clear coat over it to bring out all the depth and texture.
I wish you all could see these paintings in person! I know Paonia, Colorado is off the beaten path, but if you are ever jaunting through the Western Slope of Colorado, please reach out to me for a gallery and studio tour. Part of the beauty of these abstracts is in their surface texture. Some are velvety soft. Others are jagged and rough . . . and they’re all meant to be touched.
In the gallery featured here, I’ve placed this abstract painting into sample rooms and a sample frame to help your imagination along. I think it would look beautiful in a myriad of rooms: mid-century modern, contemporary, minimalist, rustic, bohemian . . . I hope that you like it as much as I do, and want to be lost in it for a lifetime.
