Daily Painting - 'OPPOSITES ATTRACT'- 36 x 72 inches - LaGasse Abstract Art on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Today's painting is a 3 piece dynamic abstract, 'OPPOSITES ATTRACT'. Each gallery wrap canvas is 24x36 inches, with the overall size measuring a whopping 6 feet across!

I've been finishing up several commissions, including those textured oils that have to age like a fine wine- ha ha! Thanks for waiting, Mark. Trust me, it's worth the wait!

I've also added another giclee to the website called, 'Serenity Prayer Sunset'. The overall size of the framed giclee print is 23.5 x 15.5 inches. For those of you who have always liked the 'Bora Bora Sunset', this giclee is based on that oil painting!

With the giclees, you have four different options: you have the option of ordering a classic black & white frame, or a colored contemporary frame. You also have the option of ordering the giclee print on canvas, or simply ordering the giclee print on fine art paper.

See the first giclees here:

Daily Painting - 'WINDSWEPT'- 36 x 72 inches - LaGasse Abstract Art on Gallery Wrap Canvas

'WINDSWEPT' - 72 X 36 inches - My latest painting is a dramatic sunset with tree silhouette. This is one of my latest techniques, which involve 'distressing' the scene with a sort of 'crackle'. I enjoy this, and I'm going to see where I can go with it. I already created the previous 'Liberty' piece with this background.

Some of my previous techniques are what I call 'Fossil' texture, where I create fossil-like patterns with pure oil paint. Another is the 7 piece panoramic sunsets, which offer a distinct, contemporary look to a scene.

Anyway, I have to get back to painting!! Enjoy!

Today's painting is an homage to Lady Liberty. This Pop Art painting has the silhouette of her against a New York City sunset. The deep green at the base represent both the dark green water surrounding Liberty Island, as well as the copper patina that will show on the statue, when it starts oxidizing again.

This painting is 24 x36 inches, acrylic on gallery wrap canvas.

Daily Painting - 'DEEP WATERS'- 24 x 66 inches - LaGasse Abstract Art on Gallery Wrap Canvas

'DEEP WATERS' - Overall size is 66 x 24 inches (at the center panel). I love painting this type of seascape, because it's always a challenge to create a sort of 'glow' in the water. I think the dark skies also help set off the deep blue water.
As I mentioned before, I've been working on several pieces, as well as commissions, so please bear with me if I don't answer your emails right away.
Also, thank you to all who have responded so far to my inquiry in the newsletter! You're giving me a lot to think about, and I'm glad that I asked! :)
Until tomorrow...

Been real busy lately...

Hey, it's not that I haven't painted- In fact that's ALL I've been doing -:) I've been catching up on a lot of commissions this week and weekend -THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR ORDERS!

My wish with all of my paintings is that you love it even more in person! I try my best with each and every piece, and perhaps that is why I don't crank out 3 paintings a day. But that's my way.

I've also been busy preparing the website for the Fine Art Giclees that I am now offering. The first one is available here:

My dear collectors will be getting the full details and a mini-survey in their newsletter. If you haven't received the newsletter by Friday, or if you are not on our mailing list, you may subscribe by using the 'Feedback' link here:

I've also been working on several new paintings, but I don't really like showing unfinished work, unless it's really been intended as a tutorial to begin with.

Hopefully I'll have something finished for tomorrow. Until then -Hasta la vista, baby!

'A Night at the Improv' - Today's painting is an acrylic abstract, measuring a total of 72 inches wide, by 36 inches high. The name is fitting, since the paintings in this series are created without any preliminary sketches or ideas- it all unfolds as I go along!
