Acrylic Paint on Canvas
18" x 24"
I got a surprise commission the other day to do an abstract. I mean a pure abstract focusing mostly on texture. It's been SO many years since I've done something like this and my goodness it is such a nice change of pace. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my work to death. When I make my work I feel skilled, organized, planned, and when it comes down to it; I feel like I'm totally in control. That doesn't appeal to everyone and I get why, it can be exhausting, but I just thrive off of that. However, it's really nice to have a canvas in front of me and not feel entirely restricted by rules and plans. I still have a plan in my head but it's not rigid. I can splash and scrape and smudge and slap ... it's just so freeing!
I am happy to say that I was able to deliver this piece in person while visiting Sudbury last week. The new owners have been so supportive of my dreams and this is actually the third piece in their Malinda Prud'homme Art Collection! They love the piece and it was so nice to see them and catch up a bit. An all around amazing experience. :)
