“Whorled Energy” Red Abstract Painting


This new size-for-me size canvas – 24″ x 18″ – told me it wanted to be black. I used black gesso to make it so. Brightening it up I sponged it with metallic gold in all kinds of shapes and spots making it a wonderful backdrop for my favorite color, red.

I started with a big band of color, but soon covered that with a whirled design of reds and metallic gold and copper. I kept adding more swirls of all of those colors until the metallic copper finished it off.

It’s an exciting design, full of blazing color you can look at again and again.

This canvas panel can be hung either in a vertical or horizontal orientation. I have it hung without a frame. If you decide to frame it, I suggest black, or add a wide mat with a gold or black frame. Very contemporary.

I’ll add a protective varnish and include a Certificate of Authenticity.

Whorled Energy will brighten either home or office. Consider the background setting colors and the spaces available, this medium sized painting might just be perfect for your space.
