ABSTRACTS & SURREALISM

Feel free to click on an image to see a larger view :D

 
"The Roger Jolly's"
30 x 40 acrylic on canvas stretched 3/4 inches deep.
 
Original Painting
 $850.00

This painting won an Honorable Mention at the 2012 Landmark show at the Arts of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City!  It really is such an awesome piece.  Abstracts are a tough sell around these parts :D

Anyway this painitng is an abstract view from the ceiling of The Jolly Roger's in Kill Devils Hills, NC.

I eat breakfast there a lot and looked up one day and just saw this in my head as a great abstract.  So I snapped a pic with my phone and took it home to 

Duality Dancing
36 x 48 acrylic on canvas stretched 3/4 inches deep
 
Original Painting
 $850.00

This is a large gorgeous piece full of color and some chunks of texture in some spots.  What I love about this painting is how many different things people see in this piece when they look at it at my studio!  The frame is perfect for it too!  

"Maid Plaid"
30 x 40 acrylic on canvas stretched 3/4 inches deep
 
Original Painting
 $485.00

This painting has an awesome effect in that the tone of it kind of changes as you pass by it.  See I used metallic paintings for the first layer and made sure to leave lots exposed so it would peak through the other layers of colors.  This piece would look great in almost any space :D


Some say this piece is a cross between Jackson Pollock and Piet Mondrian... me likey!

"A Comedy of the Not So Fairrors"
8 x 24 acrylic on canvas stretched 1.5 inches deep
 
Original Painting
 $285.00

I really like character figures what can I say.  This piece just trips me out!  Title here really says it all!

"How I Wonder"
10 x 30 acrylic on canvas stretched 1.5 inches deep
 
Original Painting
 $285.00

This was just sort of a painting that evolved.  First I used left over paint to make the gray.  Then a day later, I used more left over paint to create the orange and used a brush handle and rolled the paint over the canvas after I poured it on there.  And again, a day later, I just looked at the canvas and saw a girl sitting under a tree... surrounded by a blue sky some plants and well, since I had just recently painted a peacock, they were on the brain and so I thought how beautiful a white peacock would be in the foreground and so.... I went to it!!!
