I recently purchased a couple cases of larger canvases to paint on (30" x 30" and 36" x 24") and have been on a bit of a painting frenzy. I've always been hesitant to "paint large" since my previous experiences with the process didn't fare very well but I've recently changed my mind..... I just love the freedom of throwing a big blog of paint on the canvas and swishing it around into a desirable shape or design!!! I just let my emotions fall all over the canvas and move them around in the paint. I've posted a few of the more recent large works on my blog and on http://www.fineartamerica.com/ and http://www.dailypaintersabstract.blogspot.com/ but wanted to show you how they look in my gallery. Last Saturday I completely cleared the walls of my studio and rehung the new works intermixed with a few of the older ones. Here's the result:
This painting was sold to an interior designer for a client's home. There is a lot of texture and scribblings on the canvas but they don't show up very well in the photograph. Believe me -- the finished piece looks a LOT better than the photo!!
