As I get older I find my work increasingly moving in an abstract direction: I love the intensity that finding my way to abstraction brings and the way my brain has to think it a completely new way. Using black canvas provides a strong background to work from and every stroke, every colour has to be thought out. Gold leaf, small amounts of green, blue and gold mirror leaf, as well as high gloss varnish in small amounts add contrast and texture to the finished piece. Take a look at every image to really get a sense of this piece.
Deep edged canvas in a handpainted black tray frame - simply gorgeous!
