Original Art 24" x 24"

Acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas

Night rides and night hikes are a summertime pleasure. When days are too hot to pedal or log miles, I go out after dark with starlight leading the way. My route through the public rose garden is a favourite. There's a peaceful intimacy, a feeling this garden is just mine, these roses just for me when the darkness otherwise hides all but what's caught in the moonbeams.

Capturing the romantic allure of a hot summer night, ‘Navy’ is the flipside of the other colorful abstract paintings in this series. While the rest of the collection showcases colours brought to life in bright sunshine with expansive compositions, 'Navy' is focused and illuminates with a slender beam of light and moonlit shapes in the background.

Working with slightly larger canvases gave me room to develop movement and intrigue in the background. With 'Navy' I dove headfirst into the idea of a summer scene after dark, lost in the quiet solitude of the hours beyond midnight where subtle silhouettes suggest the contours of a garden without revealing any secrets.

The original acrylic painting on canvas is sent stretched, varnished, and wired to hang straight out of the box. Also available as a fine art print created from the original acrylic painting, 'Navy' brings a little drama to your wall decor.

Original Collection

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.
