"Sirius" Contemporary Abstract Painting

Oh! How I am LOVING abstract painting!!!!!  Here is the re-do of Serendipity that I spoke of in my last post. I am so glad I did not toss the "cursed" canvases.   The originals looked too much alike.  These can hold their own separately but I think the big bang is when they are together.  I was striving for the pieces to work off of each other and I think I achieved that. Since there is not even a speck of the old piece remaining, I gave it a new name.  Lots of overlapping layers here.  A final red glaze brought the whole work together. Little glints of shimmer that I cannot capture with the camera. Piece measures 24x25x1.5.  I still need to paint the sides.  Available on my website.

This is the first "In Situ" piece that I added to my website.  I tried to get it to scale assuming the couch  is 4 feet across.  This is one of the royalty free images I downloaded.
I feel like I've been on the computer a bit too long today so I am going to leave it here.  As always, thanks for visiting my blog!  Until the next time...
