This piece was submitted for the Artfinder/Liquitex "Muted Collection.
An abstract painting build over many layers of oil paint. Thick paint was applied, painted over, smudged, scraped off, re-applied and so on lending this piece depth and texture. The colours are beautifully muted and soft.
The painting is inspired by mood rather than imagery. The painting is an expression of a tranquil, reflective moment in time - muted colours reflect an inward looking process; a toning down of expression.
As often in the creative process I set out to paint a very different kind of painting but was then taken into an unexpected direction where unconscious dynamics guide the painting process.
The canvas is painted around the edges in a complementary colour and is ready for hanging.
