Grateful Heart

Price: $550.00

Size: 12" x 12"

Oil on Gallery Wood Panel

This past year and again this year we have discovered new ways to survive being *inside.  And now that spring is here, we all ache to breathe the outdoors and soak up the sun!

Being in nature has a way of bringing us the feeling of wonder and excitement.  The natural world is important not only for its beauty but for its valuable prominence that provides us healing. This painting was inspired by last years day paddle on Eels Creek, Kawarthas.  A day when we felt free, alive and grateful.

This painting started with a red acrylic wash all over the surface.  Once dry, I divided the painting using the grid system to create 9 equal spaces to help with composition.  An outline was sketched using a chalk pastel pencil.  Once happy with the composition, a red acrylic was painted on top of the chalk pastel to start the main shapes.  Acrylic paint was applied in abstracted ways, focusing of fun unusual colour with an atmosphere of fun.  After that dried, oil paint was painted in layers, using gestural and big bold strokes to keep the spontaneity of the piece.
