The Story:

Lavender Seas is an abstract painting that was an exercise in play & color.  Made with acrylic paints and isopropyl alcohol, I combined the two to see what the effects would be.  My mixture was off most of what I was hoping would happen simply didn’t.  However, the colors flowed and combined nicely in the end. There are some subtle alcohol-based effects (some splatters & a bit of cellular formation at the top) so it wasn’t a total loss on that end.  Ultimately, I was very happy with the way it turned out.

I love working with purples and blues.  If I didn’t consciously try to use other color palettes, I think most of my work would be in that color range.  For this piece, I added in a rather bold magenta.  It was a small amount but it mixed in very nicely and adds to the over all soothing nature of the painting.  Because I find it very soothing to look at, and lavender is one of the major colors, it seemed like Lavender Seas would be a good name.
