“Tropical Series 1” Abstract Painting


Are they waves, tropical scarves or flags, your new sundress? The bright aqua’s contrast with the deep blue green jumps out at you.

This small 8×8” abstract painting is part of a series of four (Tropical Series) done on AquaBoard, experimenting with the surface using acrylic paints. The sheen of the acrylic paints is gone. Instead the shine is absorbed by the surface of this board. Still, there is a rough quality that is very interesting to see in a painting.

You can find some cozy spot to lean it against, such as a backsplash or your desk vase. Or, aquire the whole set to make a larger statement on a wall. Fun, bright, happy paintings with the mood they incite.
