My piece Summer Pine Tree is an acrylic poured large abstract piece. The 5 color pallet was very carefully chosen and mixed as complimentary colors. No whites or blacks were used in order to make this piece as bright as possible. I used a paint pouring method in the background first with pink and blue in the forms of abstract clouds coming down. The fuchsia pink and contrasted bright blue give the feel of a very hot dry summer day in Northern Ontario. Next a deep purple and light yellow with small accents create rolling abstract rocks that align with the upper left and downward to the right composition. Lastly while all the paint is still wet I added the tree in with the light greens. I handmade this frame with a .75 inch spacing and a light- medium stained frame to continue the overall bright feel of the painting. Sumer Pine Tree will undoubtedly brighten a space with life and the fluid motion of the clouds and sky are ever-changing. The poured sky's detail looks incredible close up.
