How Did She Do That?

I have no professional training and while that has slowed me in some respects, it has afforded me the freedom to try some unorthodox methods when creating art.

Here’s how  these three paintings were born:

I decided to try a different approach for what I tentatively called my Abstract Flower series. To create these 3D images, each color was blown onto the canvas using a straw. Using acrylics, I blew on two colors at a time to create a variety of shades and contrasts; peaks and valleys. It was a tedious process at best.

I was really pleased with the outcome, but even so I felt that something was missing. I put them on the wall in front of my desk for three months. Every day I stared at them before I finally realized what they lacked – they needed background color to make them stand out.

So I added the color and viola! I now have something that is truly special and really makes the colors  pop.

 

These measure 8x8x2 and each side of the canvas has four grommets to add the the attractiveness of the piece.

Yes. The originals are available. Contact me if you would like to purchase They are ready to hang and need no framing.
