Shirley McKell, "Tempest"
24" x 30", acrylic on canvas, CAN$350.00 Unframed - Available for Sale
I started this piece with the intent to convey energy or power. There is pretty much a separate painting below the finished layer as it didn't feel right, and I kept staring at it, trying to have what I wanted to "emerge". Finally I made peace with it. As an emerging artist, abstract painting is difficult. Even for the experienced ones, I would assume, at times - as there is no reference. It has to be instinctive. I hope you feel movement in "Tempest"
