This abstract textured painting was fun to make. Although it is fairly minimalistic in style it is made up of a lot of different layers of paint and textures. The paint was applied and rubbed off giving it an antiqued or aged look. I am so pleased with the outcome and the beautiful turquoise and blue that I almost kept it for myself. Unfortunately my walls are jam packed with art from many different artists and styles so I couldn't add it to my collection. I am hoping it finds a happy home to someone that will appreciate all the intricate details and wonderful textures.
I have been selling my original art online since October of 2008. My art took a side line for eleven years, now I am back in it full force. After studying art in my early 20's I went on to sell it at a custom picture framing store and gallery. I was the owner/operator for eleven years but when my family expanded to six children, four of my own and two step children, I decided to concentrate on my own art and spend my time at home. Years of running a successful brick and mortar business with at least one to two children running around the store with me has helped shape my multi tasking talents!
I started that business when I was only 24 and made it a success, now I am putting that same ambition into shaping myself as a professional self represented artist. While I do have a few paintings showing in a gallery I find it more viable to try and find my niche online while surrounding myself with my family.
