after the rain

Subject:
abstract nature
Contemporary abstract paining inspired by the patterns and colors of the landscape. There is a fleeting moment after the rain, when the world seems to take a breath, a quiet stillness that hangs in the air and waits for the world to reawaken.An atmosphere that is recreated in my painting, that aims to distill a single moment into an abstract visual narrative that invites inward reflection and contemplation

Made with love

Professional quality acrylic paints on either a 10 or 12oz canvas.  I like to stretch the canvases myself, select the materials, the wood and canvas and assemble the frames in my studio. Frames are either hardwood or pine,  professional stretchers that are stretched with either 100% cotton or a cotton-polyester blend. I like the smooth fine weave of the polycotton. 

Handling the materials at this early stage provides my initial connection with the work, a familiarity with the wood and the surface of the weave and marks the beginning of a journey.
