My abstract painting style is based on my own unique tastes and preferences in art and decor. I paint using vibrant colors, thick textures and bold brush strokes that show organic movement across the canvas to get the striking paintings I imagine in my mind.
When making my own paintings I love the energy that happens when combining color and texture, like using thick bright colors layered over dark bold shades and tones. So I freely use striking red, vibrant purple, lush green, bright blue, sunshine yellow and bold orange together in one painting. I also try new brush and spatula styles and splatter techniques to create interesting shapes and add depth. I mix all these elements together for a contemporary wall hanging that is bold, bright and full of life.
It’s no surprise that I start with vibrant modern abstracts in any home decor makeover. Fun bold abstract paintings make me smile and then I react more positively to what’s going on around me, even if it’s raining. It’s not magic, just positive reinforcement through art.
The abstract painting Fireflies shown above is a textured acrylic with broad strokes of paint in striking green and blue on a yellow background with splashes of striking orange and yellow. Fireflies in the back garden are dancing in the evening summer breeze. This original wall hanging measures 18" x 24".
