New Abstract Art For The Shain Gallery Abstract Invitational Show
Last night I finished framing the last two pieces for the August 12th Abstract Invitational at Shain Gallery. I will be showing six mixed media pieces, ranging from 12x36 to 48x60! Here is one that I'll be showing at this show. Somewhere along the way in this series, I realized that my brain thinks in vertical terms and not horizontal. Anytime I'm painting in a portrait orientation, the painting pours out of me, like the values and colors and lines just know where to go. With these landscape oriented pieces, a lot more push pull happens. In the end, though, all's well that ends well.
I'm really really happy with how this piece layered. It seems like no matter where your eye lands, there is depth. Also, there are a lot of hard edges to balance the soft ones. Up until this piece, my palette had been staying very purple and periwinkle for this series. In this one, I wanted to bring in a deep dark blue with teal and warm it up with beige and burnt umber.
