Magic In The Mystery 36″X36″



Acrylic, watercolor, ink, and mica pigment on canvas.

I’m proud to share this new series of textured abstract paintings that I’ve dreamt of creating for years. It wasn’t until recently when I began exploring the diverse possibilities of new mediums such as, watercolor, ink and pure raw pigments that I developed the tools and experience necessary to bring my vision to life on canvas.

The creation process developed gradually over several months. Working flat on the floor, I began by applying individual thin layers of watercolor and transparent inks to the surface of the canvas letting each one pool and swirl creating spontaneous patterns of energy and flow as they dried. I used the transparency of these layers to create an ethereal vibrancy and glow from deep within the painting.

Using the fluid underpainting as inspiration for the final composition, layers of acrylic paint were applied using a variety of techniques and tools making each piece unique and impossible to recreate.

Iridescent mica powder was applied to strategic areas in between layers to create a soft shimmer which can only be seen from certain viewpoints, adding to the magic and intrigue of these paintings.

Lastly, sumptuous layers of thick impasto marks were applied using my signature style of textural palette knife work.

Perhaps deceptively simple from afar, these paintings invite you closer and pause to explore their seductive surfaces and mysterious layers. Take a deep breath, lean in and you too will discover new hidden treasures each time you experience this work of art.

Medium: Acrylic painting on 1.5” gallery depth canvas | Signed on the front | Signed, titled and dated on the back.

Features:  The painted image wraps onto the sides of the canvas so your new art is ready to hang. Framing isn’t necessary, but is certainly possible after arrival based on your tastes and preferences.

This painting is sealed with a clear, removable, semi-gloss varnish to enhance the vibrancy of colours and protect your painting from dust, dirt and fading from UV light. Still, it’s best to keep original art out of direct sunlight.

Your new painting will arrive unframed, wired and ready to hang straight out of the box – no special tools or handiwork required.

A note about colour: All artwork on this site has been professionally photographed and colour corrected to most accurately represent the original painting. Every monitor displays colour differently and may vary from the original work of art. If you’d like to see more detail images before purchase please email me.
