"Urban Blues" 48” x 22” x 1.5”

Meant to evoke the blue notes, blue sounds, blues music of the city breaking through the concrete of buildings and pavement and giving the city its soul--its blue soul.

This acrylic painting is highly textured--as much a tactile pleasure as a visual. Many of the bright colors actually physically protrude through the grey, which, though acrylic, was applied with a cement trowel and does indeed look like cracked cement. The grey areas are chunky and raised in places, flat in others. Bright slivers of color can be glimpsed through many of the cracks.

Acrylic and acrylic mediums on gallery-wrapped canvas with a built-in mounting bracket. Gallery-wrapped canvases are not typically framed, so this painting is ready to hang.

Free shipping within the continental U.S. via UPS or FedEx ground. Crating and processing time is 1-2 days, and the painting will then be in transit up to 6 additional days, depending on your location. Expedited shipping is available at additional expense.
