I recently completed a new abstract painting inspired by my waterscape series. I am a huge fan of neutral color palettes in my own personal decorating so I was anxious to create a similar abstract work that would look great hanging on my own walls. I experimented with cream, taupe, bright white, and both gold and bronze metallic paints before applying the super high gloss top coats. I would love to see this painting find a home in a contemporary beach house with lots of earthy textured sisal, woven seagrass, dark wood details, and bright white walls.
One aspect I love with these paintings, that does not come across by photographing them unfortunately, is that they reflect so much light given the high gloss finish, as well as the metallic paints, that they look different from every angle or every hour of the day depending on what natural light may fall upon the surface.
Next up I hope to create a blindingly bright white and gold piece much larger than this 36×24 work. Stay posted!
