Original Art 24" x 24"
Acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas
A basket of freshly picked peaches at the farmers market struck me as the perfect inspiration for this painting. I didn't want to be too literal so stayed away from obvious oval shapes, but 'sun ripe' was the phrase floating in my head as I worked and explored a palette new for me. Happily, my brushstrokes worked their magic to deliver something juicy and warm with all the delectable velvety tones of my favourite summer fruit.
Of all the abstract paintings in the ‘Summer Detours’ collection, ‘Peach’ is perhaps the most seductive exploration of taste and scent with colour, a bite into the sweet heat of a blazing late afternoon sun. The slightly larger canvas gave me the room to develop this idea, layer upon layer, to its full glorious potential in a spectrum of warm summer colours. Just be sure you have a napkin handy for any juice that runs down your chin!
The sides of this abstract acrylic painting are painted so you can enjoy it right away without needing a frame. A fine art print, beautifully created from the original is also available to bring that summer feeling inside and onto your walls 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.
