24″ x 48″ textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas
Remember the days of running through piles of raked leaves, hearing the sounds of soft crunching underfoot as leaves go flying all around? A beautiful kaleidoscope of reds, golds and oranges on a crisp fall day! I painted Momentum to bring back those memories of a carefree time and place, when life was simple and playing with friends and siblings was the highlight of your day. Painted with thick oil paint and palette knives, I’ve left staccato strokes and diagonal lines to add to the feeling of motion, joy and energy while the three dimensionality of the paint, bring the scene to life.
