Contemporary Acrylic Painting on 20"x24" canvas


 When I came across these flowers I knew it was going to have to be a painting.  I absolutely loved the abundance of bright colors. The violets against the turquoise- total eye candy for me!  Once again,  working on a black canvas which seems to bring out the brilliance of the colors.
I finished this one up last week and am presently working on a large purely abstract - red, green, yellow and combo shades of- that has been presenting its challenges to me.  Will post as soon as it's done.  Wrapping it up and getting ready to take all these works to Hawthorn Galleries, Inc. Show time is coming up!

As I sat back and reflected this morning, I thought of this painting I worked on this last week and the abundance of color it has.  It reminded and made me think of how much we have here in America and how thankful I am. So, I sat down and wrote a list and here it is;  family, friends, the seasons- it's spring!, the rain- garden is growing, shelter and food, the gifts we've been given, sharing with others, joy, beauty that surrounds us, stuff we really don't need but yet have been given for our enjoyment, cheesecake, pugs and last but by no means least a heavenly Father who watches over us.  Perhaps you could do your own reflection and write a list today.

..... until at last the Spirit is poured out on us from heaven.  Then the wilderness will become a fertile field, and the fertile field will yield bountiful crops.  Isaiah 32:15

This is absolutely beautiful! It reminds me of the fushia plant my grandmother had. I can't wait to see this one in person.

This is such a beautiful, vibrant painting! It reminded me, right away, of a motivational/inspirational website that I like to read every now and again, featuring art that resembles abundance! If you are feeling so bold, you might consider sharing this one there? It would be a wonderful addition to the art work featured there, in my own humble opinion. :") If you don't though, that is completely understandable... just know that I think it is worthy of an unending audience!
