Shiny Happy Landscape

Shiny Happy Landscape

11" x 14" x .75"

Acrylic on Canvas

This painting is SOLD.

This happy, joyous landscape is filled with colorful, bizarre flowers, fluttering butterflies, a bright bird, buzzing bee, crawling caterpillar, and a rainbow cloud over a softly luminescent aqua-lime background. The surface of the piece is textured to create a sense of depth and substance. This painting evokes a wondrous sense of happiness! The colors and designs arise spontaneously and reflect my interest in tribal and aboriginal art, specifically in the act of storytelling through nonrepresentational means. My abstract art is also heavily inspired by my world travels, particularly my visits to remote tribal villages in the Kutch region of India, as well as my visits to temples and roadside shrines in Sri Lanka, India, and Nepal. The sides of the artwork are painted black, making it ready to be hung on the wall directly without a frame!
