I love the sky at dusk...as the light begins to fade, colours and sounds fall away leaving deep feelings of peace and serenity. It's then that I let myself fall into silent (or muted) bliss. Almost in rapture.
Rapture was inspired by those emotions and is why I feel this piece fits the muted theme.
I use highest quality acrylics and glazes to create my paintings. This piece is painted using a muted colour pallete on deep-edge stretched cotton canvas with the edges painted white. It is my 1st entry for the #ArtfinderLiquitex competition.
I sign 'OPus' on the front of my work and then they are sprayed with two coats of protective varnish. Once carefully packaged they are insured and sent via a traceable courier service.
This piece is ready to hang - no framing necessary.

Here's a little about me and what I do....
My work explores my own perception of the world I find myself in.
I look to the sky and natural landscapes to find peace, inner calm and inspiration for both my paintings and photographs.
I also see beauty in the everyday and that beauty inspires my more abstracted pieces.
To create my paintings I use a build up of glaze layers. Mine is a tactile and emotional process and the paintings seem to appear before me as if they have created themselves.
My photographic imagery comes from an amalgamation of techniques - old and new. I love to bring together my photographs of skies and landscapes with both painted and photographed texture to create something completely new and unique.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I hope it inspires and moves you and that you enjoy it as much as I did creating it.
All my best wishes
