Original gestural improvised semi-abstract expressionist painting with spring palette and dance or acrobatic motifs or elements.

Colours include blue, heavy dense black as of silhouetted bare trees, or birds, deep fuchsia pink, bright golden yellow, lilac or lavender and soft pale green.
Lots of lively markmaking gives this work a bold, exuberant feeling! A winter-into-spring painting.

"Arialists (i)"
Medium: Acrylic underpainting (black drawn lines) then oil paints over, using alkyd medium (this greatly reduces "drying" time, as well as increasing luminosity and creating a more flexible paint film, less prone to brittleness and cracking with age.)
Support: Canvas paper
Dimensions: 15 and 3/4 by 11 and 3/4 inches.
Completed: March 31st 2011
Reduced by over $30.

A small signature monogram will also be added to the painting.


This work will be sent to you rolled, in a sealed, sturdy art mailing tube. This reduces shipping costs considerably. The painting can then have a rigid backing board added as a simple part of the framing process.

Send via International Airmail.
I will ship to the address given to etsy unless a note is included when ordering with an alternative address, for example for convenience a work or other daytime address. If you would prefer this, please let me know in the note to seller at time of ordering.
