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!
