Original Art 24" x 24"
Acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas
Purple was the last colour I learned to love. It always seemed a bit outside of my comfort zone and I simply didn't understand its power or the glorious range of beauty that it held. Perhaps I was reluctant to explore, afraid of my unknowingness, or simply, a colour snob. I'm happy to see more and more purples - magenta grape here - showing up in my abstract work because it's deliciously fun. It's the life of the party! If there's a painting tempting you to the dance floor - this is the one!
‘Grape’ is plump and juicy. One of my ‘Summer Detours’ series of abstract colourful paintings, it’s the result of experiments in colour and composition to capture the feeling of a long meandering summer day.
Painting on a slightly larger canvas gave me extra room to experiment with colour blends and develop additional movement and textures in the background. I lost myself in colour, enjoying every drop of juicy, sweet, happy summer fun and playing with composition on this canvas.
The original ‘Grape’ painting is a fresh splash of colour that arrives stretched, varnished, and wired so you can hang it right out of the box. Also available as a beautiful abstract art print in several sizes it brings a burst of summer colour to your home.
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.
