Another Older Abstract: “Soaring”

This one is from 2009, when I decided to try acrylics again!  I did about ten 36″x36″ acrylic paintings in a couple of weeks, working furiously (which you have to do if you’re using acrylic, right?).  I was even using interactive paints, which can have the painting time extended with certain mediums, and can be reactivated with water within a certain time period.

After doing those ten, I went back to oils.  Now I’m giving heavy body, non-interactive acrylics another go, and finding them kind of cool, but still I have to work fast.

This is one of my favorites from that period.

It was with the utmost reluctance that I found the figure could not serve my purposes. But a time came when none of us could use the figure without mutilating it.

  • Oh I love this. The simplicity and colors combine well to create a work which combines a feeling of zen with whimsy. Yes – do another bigger version.
