Crimson Crash

This was my first time painting with the colour 'gold'.
I love painting and the joy that my paintings bring. The quote that states, 'Dance as if no one is watching..' is hard to apply to life. I feel that I can apply this to my art.

Crimson Crash

I love reds. I love how they are warm and cozy. They make me feel loved and special. Red is the colour that makes me feel safe and secure.

The shades of red are deep and beautiful to me. Often I am drawn to the deep, rich and dark reds like burgundy and maroon so this was something a bit different for me on the 'reds palette'.

This painting shows how reds can be bright and light. I think of skipping on an autumn day when I look at this. I think of confetti in a parade in October. I think of lightening that strikes when you experience a spark with a glance... just one look that makes your cheeks flush. If cheeks were art, they would look like this when love struck!

The chaotic zip of the reds and golds give me energy, too.

This painting was done in acrylics using a variety of techniques.
I started with reds and gold on the canvas and spread them with sponge.
After drying, I dropped paint directly onto the canvas.
I used sponges and brushes and whimsically dipped colours onto the canvas.
It was a lot of fun to create.

Well, it looks like a bunch of tadpoles swimming around in blood or red wine to me. I know, I know, it's just me. I know people who can spend hours standing in front of an abstract painting, studying it, enjoying it, seeing all sorts of things in it--sort of like with Rorchards [sp} Ink Blots.
