Red Stripes, Blue Flares
Abstract Painting


Contemporary patriotic abstract painting, 9×12″ canvas paper.

The purple and blue flares of color came first, then the red stripes and the silver glitz (photo shows as gray!!!). What do you see? Is that really a red picket fence? Maybe we have fireworks?

The painting has a patriotic red-white-blue theme with help from a stencil and silver metallic paint.

I’ve mounted and matted this canvas paper with a white mat, but the mounting is removable if you want another color for the mat or no mat at all.

Where to hang it? This small size painting (mat outside dimension is 12″ x 16″) would look nice on any narrow wall where you could hang it at eye level or lower. It could also be part of a group of paintings on a larger wall. So you have options with this small painting. You probably have just the spot!

I’ve given it a protective varnish, too. It arrives with a Certificate of Authenticity and is signed front and back.
