This is my latest painting - a LARGE, 3-piece abstract OIL painting!
That's right, I usually paint these large abstracts in acrylic because of the faster drying time, but decided to use oil on this one instead. I love working with oil paint, but dislike waiting for it to dry. This one will take about 2-3 weeks to dry before I can ship it out, but if you like it, don't wait it out-- someone else might get it! (If you want to be even MORE unique, check out the TEXTURED OIL paintings, which take about 3-5 weeks to dry before shipping -- definitely worth the wait!)
The overall size of this abstract is 6 feet wide by 3 feet high -- that's 18 square feet of color! The canvases are chunky: 1.5 inches deep gallery wrap, with the sides painted a dark raw umber, which creates a frame-like illusion.
See more photos of this abstract painting on my website.
The shapes within (and even the colors) may seem mild to the casual observer, but while painting, I envisioned them to contain explosive energy to be unleashed as needed. Hence its name...
