Life Journey - Dancing On My Own
Part of my "Life Journey" series, painted in the spring of 2021. Light and breezy and airy, but with lots going on...
I used an acrylic underpaint to set the base tones, then used oil for the glow, finished with individual gestural elements on top, in oil, charcoal and pastels.
|Technique:||Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas|
|Edition:||Original, one of a kind artwork|
|Unframed Size:||40in x 30in|
West Vancouver, British Columbia
I love the fluidity and texture of oil paints and I mostly work wet on wet, where the surprises can be exciting and liberating. I like to work on large canvases without a specific picture in mind, and work with my process to see the art unfold.
"Art, for me, is a way of capturing the essence of my feelings and inspirations through fluid shapes, translucent and bold colors. I aspire to create art that is not anything recognizable, not contrived, not anything describable, an abstract construction that just makes you feel."
