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.

For the human eye there is no space without its colour; and no colour that does not create its own space – and this meeting-place of colours becomes… an edge, a line, an outline, a profile, a boundary or frontier between two differing colour

  • The colours in your painting are some of my favourite to live with. I have had some of those soft greens on various walls for years. Always feels like the sun is shining and the same for your painting.
