Mica - Acrylic on Velvet 2019

Inspired by sandy beaches, the rough and the calm, this one was a gentle one with kindly lapping warm waves, lagoons and sparkling mica, quartz and myriad other parts of hard mountains that make up the soft beach. Feel the heat of warm sand and the cool of a gentle sea froth from soft velvet and pearled paints.

Golds, Silvers, Greens, Violets and tones of blue interact with iridescent glitters and metallic paint to give a vibrant, sparkling painting sure to hold attention and embolden any wall space which has full lighting.

In different lighting, daylight, artificial, sunlight, low light, this painting speaks a different language, sometimes blinging and zinging with reflected twinkles and glitterings, sunlit beach! Other times more muted with hints of shimmer and shine around the dark sand like a moonlit night.

I am drawn to shorelines and horizons, constantly seeing them not only as metaphor for ever changing perspective and moments in time but also as potential escapes to new places, to the calling shoreline on the other side, a wide open window to wander through.
