Acrylic and mixed media on canvas
"Portals of Discovery" is a mixed media abstract painting that evolved over a long period of time. It has several layers of techniques including painting, drawing, collage, and print and mark making and several abstract elements of art – color, shape, line, texture,. The composition has gone through several stages- it began as a simple collage with suspended circles and has evolved into this more complex dichotomy.
This painting began with a loose idea of hanging shell chimes that are sold in all beach shops.
I always wanted to paint an abstract with this color combination, mainly red, black and white ( there are other colors if you look closely) and I am finally happy with the results.
Happy to mention that this painting made it into the :Portals" show - as "Portals of Discovery"
