In my last post about the Wood Quilts, I mentioned that I was loving the aqua & yellow combination so much that I wanted to explore them further through my abstract paintings. I started abstract painting in 2020, as I needed something to help me process everything that was happening. Art has always been my go to for stress relief. Here are the two I did that used up the rest of the color blends I had made for the Wild Geese barn quilt.
This first one is 11x14 - all palette knife work. I did this one along side the wood quilt. As I would mix a color I would wipe off my palette knife on this canvas as I went. I tend to mix my paints in condiment containers with lids so that I can save my extras. After I finished painting all the triangles for the quilt I dipped back into the cups to spread more paint until I was satisfied with the results.
The larger piece is 18x24 - it was pure play for me. I spread and dotted and just had fun with the play on colors. The next day I came back to it and went in a whole new direction by really thinning down the paints so I could see some of the pattern play through the top layer. I absolutely love how this came out.
As with anything I make/paint, if you are interested drop me a line.
