Daily Painting - 'THE DANCE OF MUSIC'- 36 x 72 inches - LaGasse Abstract Art on Gallery Wrap Canvas



This is my latest painting- a 3 piece acrylic abstract painting in crimson-red and black, with white drip highlights. Controlling the 'drip' in the painting is not as easy as it may seem: you need the correct amount of viscosity within the paint, or the paint will not 'flow' or it may simply 'spread' wide, leaving a flat line.

Jackson Pollock did this well when he was alive. If you have a chance to see one of his works up close, by all means, do. It's awesome. What I'm doing here is similar, but different in several ways. Can you tell what they are? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, ameros!

I'm glad that you like this one- it's easily one of my favorites, and it has that crimson-red that I love so much!
