Tornado in box

Acrylic paint and mediums on 16"x20" back stapled canvas.
Antique gold, gold, umber, Golden's fluid acrylic Azo gold, fluid Nickel Azo yellow, and fluid iridescent gold made a base, unmixed, and full of streaks to let dry. This is an abstract painting in what I would call its most rudimentary form. No forethought, no planning- i painted completely unstructured. I later returned to it and added some pale olive with just a touch of turquoise, golds, and interference green. The black textured "string gel," intertwined with a copper colored gel medium, has me still passing by it as I work on other paintings, pausing with the thought-Is this done? Or in need of a total makeover??


  1. I do not think you need a total make over at all. This is a grand piece and it shows a great deal of personality and emotion. I really love how you have used the unmixed paint on the background to show a some fabulous strokes...the touch of blues pulls it all together!

    Again, I love it!

    Julianne...I wish for you a Fabulous, Delightful, Prosperous and Happy 2009 Full of Love!



  2. Kim to the rescue-We'll see about this one.

    Have a great Year.
