Celebration of Blue, 9035, metal and mixed media abstract




This metals and mixed media abstract features aluminum, pewter embossing metal, blue steel cut tacks, metal brads, acrylic modeling compound and acrylic metallic paints in an abstract composition. This is another painting for the upcoming Blue show at Third Floor Gallery in Parker, CO.
I really had fun with this one and, could it be, blue just might be my new favorite color. : - )

Carol, I love this!

But....what size is it?

I personally love square shapes so I'm sort of partial to this one.

Very visually interesting to look at. I like the way the paint was scraped onto the canvas.

You're selling this painting short though.

There is so much more than just blue here. Gray-browns, warm orange-browns, muted greens, and other neutrals all side by side working wonderfully together.

That is not an easy thing to do, so good job with that!

And that metal square near the center, well, it just rules!

Thanks, Dean. The painting is 24x24 on birch panel. I'm making a simple maple frame, painted gloss black, for it that just looks awesome.
