On Fire is meant to represent the base of a flame. The depiction is so realistic that it attracted a little fly which is now fossilized within the painting!
Ever wonder what mermaid dreams look like? I loved mixing these blues and greens in a gradient. The photos don't capture it but the paints have a shimmer to them. I mixed in a healthy amount of gold as we move closer to the surface of the water. This is a 24inx30in single ring pour. This piece is now living in British Columbia.
Badlands - I've always wanted to visit Badlands National Park in South Dakota. This is an abstract representation of how I picture the Badlands in my mind. 24x36 fluid acrylic on canvas.
Scarlet in Flight was inspired by a book cover (The Aviary Cocktail Book) that's been sitting on my coffee table for a couple of years. I've been staring at the black cover with its rainbow of covers and slowly a vision for a piece has been forming. After a couple of attempts, I've finally been able to capture how the progression and movement of colors make me feel in Scarlet in Flight. I just love the vibrancy of the colors, the movement in the center of the painting and the depth and solitude evoked by in the blues and reds on the fringes. The name Scarlet in Flight comes from the painting evoking movements of the feathers of the scarlet macaw. I'm in love. SOLD
