I am getting ready for the next Les Femmes Show on July 13th in the Marina Room at the Hassayampa Inn. So I decided to paint an old favorite, Thumb Butte with a magical twist. I see this butte every day as I gaze out my patio door. Some nights in the winter celestial sky the moon appears to be right over the butte, with a little imagination I can visualize that now in the midst of summer. When the moon would not reach this point until I was snuggly asleep. You know how much I love colors, this bold, high energy painting brings them all together. I invite you to see more of my new works at Les Femmes des Montage.
Some of you can remember when I did nothing but acrylic abstracts, mostly pours and I worked in metallic. It was fun and it dipped my toes into the world of abstraction. They were mostly non-representational. I am glad I went that route in my journey to find my own voice. It helped me loosen up.
Now days I create contemporary acrylic paintings full of movement and energy. Most of them are landscapes, but sometimes I get that yearning to become more abstracted in my work and this is such a painting. I have been doing a lot of floral landscapes this spring season. Heading into the summer months I have gradually moved back toward my monsoon landscapes, but before I transitioned I had to create a pure abstract following in the tradition of the floral. I call it “Go With The Flow” because of the pure exuberance and feeling of freedom I experienced while creating it.
It’s hot off the easel and I hope you enjoy it. If you want to see me do more abstracts like this give me a shout out. You can see more of my work or start your collection with a free download HERE
Have a great weekend and how about those MONSOONS,
