This is one of four panels that I recently finished as part of a commission request. This set is heading to Texas (not me, in case you were wondering from the title -- though I'd love to visit one day!), and is textured acrylic on gallery wrap canvas.
I used extra heavy duty canvas and stretcher bars, so each canvas ended up being about 10 pounds -- very sturdy indeed!
These were nice muted colors, and made me want to make a set for myself. It's nice having the option of changing your art in your home around every so often. I wonder if other artists do that as well?

This is a new sunset painting on 3 canvases, each one measuring 18x24 inches.
I like creating silhouette trees in this type of 3 piece sunset paintings, and I've also added a peace dove in flight to this painting. The dove's wings are back-lit as it easily navigates through the pressure of the wind!
"Winds of Brilliance" Art by AJ LaGasse Acrylic painting - 54x24 inches

This is a new abstract painting that I've just added to our art gallery. I'm fascinated with archaeology, and the artifacts that are uncovered from their buried resting places. It's no wonder that I'm drawn to creating semblances of these earthly treasures, whether man-made, or natural deposits, fossils and minerals.
This painting incorporates my signature fossil-texture in paint, with a deep red-garnet color. The background is slightly textured as well. This, coupled with a high gloss on this piece, gives it a nice depth -- something you would see when polishing a semi-transluscent stone.
This is another painting that I want to keep myself, so that's my own personal indicator of how I feel about its quality. But hey, that's just me -- you may not be into this kind of abstract painting, which is why I create different kinds! ;-)
Thanks for looking, and you will find more images of this painting on my website!

This is my first un-commissioned painting this year! I've been working on several commissioned pieces, and wanted to create something new, so I created this 2 piece set.
I love textured art, and I decided to create an interesting background along with some textured paint. I love the way this came out, and like so many of my paintings, I wish I could keep it, lol!
But, I must share (must I?) - yes, ;-)

This is a new abstract painting on 4 canvases. Rich, deep reds are matched with gold tones and deep chocolate hues. Hints of white complete the visual contrast, but not too much so!
Each canvas panel is 12x36 inches, and this set is 48x36 inches overall (4 feet by 3 feet).
To purchase this original painting, please visit my website, where you can find this, and other abstract paintings!

This is my latest painting -- a mixed media abstract, with a positive message created by my wife, Melelina! So it's more of a collaboration than just 'my' latest painting, lol!
I'm hoping to do more of these, since I believe that, as of late, the world is in need of some serious positive mojo. And I'm not talking about 'mojitos', though it sounds like a good idea...
maybe later... but ahh-humm, let's get back to the art.
This is a mixed media painting of oil and acrylic paint, and you can see more detailed close-ups of this abstract art on my website.
