Blood-red flowers against an aqua sky. These colors are a great combination because the contrast in hue, value, and intensity make the flowers really stand out against that sky. Usually my red flowers are more of a crimson, but I gave these a definite orangish tint.
Colors impact your emotions. The spaces in which you live and work are very personal, and the colors and images in those environments affect your state of mind. The vibrant color combinations I use in my work are meant to add energy and joy to the space where it lives.
I paint with a palette knife to create textural, energetic, and impressionistic paintings that speak to my own spontaneous yet restless nature. My subjects are simple; hopefully they will remind you to stop and pay attention to this simple things every day.
This work is acrylic on hardboard. I use very high quality paints so that each painting, (even the smallest) will stand the test of time. All of my works on hardboard will fit into a standard size frame and should be framed without glass. This painting is 12″x16″.
