“Nightshade” abstract – Acrylics on canvas

“Nightshade” is a deep and dark abstract painting with emerging flickers of light.

Once in a while, I have the urge to paint something, but the creative juices aren’t flowing. I end up with simple backgrounds, usually in primary colours. These plain canvases wait around until I have something to paint onto them that might match. Or, if I feel energetic with my painting, I just throw the paint onto the canvas, sometime literally. This is how “Nightshade” came about. I mixed some textured and iridescent (shiny) gels in with dark and light blue, yellow and white paints. I moved the paint around the canvas using a palette knife and created some texturing. Although this art work may look and feel dark, it makes me smile, knowing that there are glimmers of light shining through from beneath.

“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.”

Paulo Coelho
