Purple Storm was created with acrylic paint on canvas board.  It comes framed without glass.

The Story:

Purple Storm is an abstract painting featuring vivid purples and magenta. I created this after I bought the magenta colored paint. When I did the initial pouring, which included white, the final piece felt a bit flat. I actually set the painting aside for month trying to figure out how to salvage it.

Eventually I decided to try to bring out the subtle, and very thin, white areas of the painting.  I applied white acrylic paint with a toothpick to get short, tiny lines. Toothpicks are an imperfect paint delivery mechanism which was absolutely perfect for what I needed to do.

This painting comes framed and ready to hang.  If you’d like me to change the hanging orientation before I ship it, just let me know your preferred direction!
