Sunshine was created using spray paint and latex paint on canvas board. It comes framed in wood without glass.
Sunshine is an abstract painting that was and exercise in pure play. There isn’t much to say about it really. I was experimenting with combinations of spray paint and latex paint.
I started by spray painting a canvas board in a high gloss white. While that was wet, I dripped & poured blue and yellow latex paint. The latex paint has a semi-gloss finish. I used a can of compressed air to push the wet paints around a bit. The result is a mix of finishes with a slight texture.
The frame is a natural wood frame that I coated with a matte varnish after it was lightly sanded. The frame was actually purchased for a different piece. That piece was a bit too deep for the frame but it works perfectly here. The canvas board is only 4″ x 6″ so the width of the frame gives it much grander appearance.
The name Sunshine comes from the color scheme. Abstract pieces can be hard to name. In this case, it was a beautiful sunny day when I created this. The blue, yellow, and white color scheme just screams “sunshine on a partly cloudy day” to me. This was a fun piece to create.
