Sea Shoal

Modern Abstract Art

"Sea Shoal"
Acrylic on 12" x 24" (3X) canvas panels

These are presently hanging in the window of Hawthorns Galleries in downtown Springfield, Mo. It was one of those that did take me a bit to resolve. I worked on others while waiting and coming back for the next idea. It is definitely a favorite!! I began with the background and layers of acrylic paint that were allowed to drip and overlap each other, while at the same time pulling color out. The thinly layered cool colored background was contrasted with thick multi-layers of colored circles (pearls?) laying on the bottom of the sea shoal. The set of three panels are listed for $270.00. If interested speak to Kylee (Hawthorns Galleries) at 417- 866-6688.
