Here is my most recent Abstract Expressionism Painting. I love painting in the vertical – in fact, all of my paintings are vertical – I’m not sure why I am so vertical!?!
Is it OK for me to say that I love this painting? Well, I do. This painting went through many iterations – many layers, before I felt like it was completed. The original painting (first layer) looked nothing like this, but elements of that layer…tiny bits of it can probably be seen in various locations of this painting.
After applying the colours I wanted, I diverted away from my usual smear-technique, and switched to a large spatula, and used a paint-pulling technique, which I have always loved doing – it gives a thick, heavy, 3D feeling to the surface.
Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is a nearby galaxy and a satellite of the Milky Way galaxy. The distance from the Milky Way galaxy is about 50 kiloparsecs (≈163,000 light-years).
I know that my painting does not look anything like the LMC; however, what I perceive and think about when I made this painting, and when I look at it now, is like looking at a far off galaxy. Therefore, my choice of naming it LMC, was somewhat arbitrary, but justified.
I hope you enjoy seeing this painting as much as I enjoyed designing it. Thanks for your visit! 🙂
