Lagoons. Abstract Art
This is a 30" x 24" acrylic abstract piece of artwork on canvas. There is white square fabric at its base covered in gel medium (semi-gloss finish), and topped off with acrylic paints of gold, blue, teal, and white. When I decided to paint this piece I thought of Baldwin Beach in Paia, Maui. There is a small little lagoon called, "Baby Beach," where the sand and lava rock provide a calm oasis from the high surf of the Pacific ocean. I thought the fabric texture was an interesting concept to provide a ying/yang approach: square vs. the waves of the sand and surf. Painting is topped with varnish to bring glistening to the blue waters and gold sand.
