Original Art 24" x 24"
Acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas
While working on a giant abstract this summer, I discovered the perfect recipe for a fabulously bold pink. Its base is the pink of field-ripe raspberries and their sticky red juice. Then comes a handful of fading peony petals, a sprinkle of hot red roses and a dash of summer spun candy floss. Finally, melting strawberry ice cream with a cherry on top ... all enjoyed high atop a Ferris wheel. And thus, I whipped up this "hot damn" of a painting. Bon appétit!
Many nostalgic feelings of ‘pick your own’ fruit are wrapped up in ‘Raspberry’ for me – and all the sweetness of summer fruit! It’s a cheerful addition to the rainbow of colorful abstract paintings in my ‘Detours’ series; one of the ‘Summer Detours’ that captures the feeling of meandering summer days and celebrating the joy found in days filled with bright sunshine.
I used larger canvases for this series, they gave me more room to experiment, blend and mix colour and add movement and interest to the backgrounds. I spent hours with each painting, swept away by the creative process and surrendering to my pure, unapologetic love for colour in my typically playful way.
The original ‘Raspberry’ is a gorgeous burst of summer colour that will be shipped to you stretched, varnished, and wired for immediate frame-free hanging right out of the box. It’s also available as an abstract art print, beautifully created in several sizes to bring the warmth and joy of summertime into your home year-round.
This abstract acrylic painting is from my 2022 'Detours' series of colorful abstracts that celebrate the taste, scents and colors of summer. The collection of original paintings sold out, but many of these playful images live on as art prints!
A fine art print is a lovely way to add a colorful splash of art for the walls of your home in a size that suits your space best. Take a look through my collection abstract prints to find the ones that will bring your space to life.
