This is an abstract acrylic with the use of heavy mediums. This style of painting is commonly known as impasto. Heavy use of paint and texture.....making for a heavy canvas! In this style, one needs to step back and look at this from a distance. Too close, and it may not make sense.
I was hiking and came upon this most beautiful area filled with blooms, water, trees and loads of undergrowth. It was simply breathtaking. It was un-manicured. It was Mother Earth in all her glory!
To have attempted to capture each and every thing that I saw, would have missed the immediate reaction. I simply wanted to re-create the lushness, the colors and the simplicity of the beauty that nature offers.
