SkyBlaze (Acrylic on Canvas-24x30 inches)




Hi all,
Doesn’t it just…blaze! Red and fiery, yet moody with a brooding sense of unease?

Umm, perhaps a brewing storm ready to…unleash it’s all!

This one really made my day…following on from the focus on movement I had hitherto explored with Sunset Swirl, I again used loads of heavy texture combined with a frantic brush to evoke a somewhat Turneresque sky!
I’ve deliberately used some darker tones both to accentuate the hot reds as well as helping to evoke that ‘uneasy’ turmoil present in a sky during that prelude to a storm.

Again, this could so easily be an abstract piece. Take away the knowledge of subject and we are left simply with a riotous display of colour upon a tactile surface! All of which creates yet another level of interest adding to the overall enjoyment of the piece.

Catch you later

The truth is that I was concerned not to return to hear from you, from the end of October did not see a new post. So every day I visit your beautiful blog. I hope that sits very well with his family and receiving kisses and hugs from a friend who admired him both as a person as well as artistic.

You have a great abstraction power, as well as a potential and rich talent… I like your work, it's like dream, many seem windows that open to other worlds most complex. It´s crazy, it´s fantastic, it´s oniric. You´re force image is rich of sensivity, great work! I´m from Chile and if you have time, please visit my own site on…
