Peace Dream is layered in colors, with hues of blue, yellow, green, pink, red and a touch of brass metallic paint. Acrylic paint drips from the peace symbol in a thick mixture making it’s own rainbow design. The outcome was better than I expected and the artwork is an awesome addition to any room that needs color. An abstract peace painting. Hand Painted in 2012.

I used alot of different techniques for these 3 pieces. My first application was just a soft mixture of purple and blue and it looked very zen but I wasn’t satisfied so I added some metallic silver. After that I wanted to connect the pieces together by painting lines and shapes. I used brown and white and then realized something was missing, so I had to rough it up a bit and I used a rough sponge to apply more white and took the red paint and painted over the white lines. I also knew I wanted to outline the canvas with  black and carry some of that black into the foreground. Something was still missing after that. It lacked character, so I took yellow ochre and splashed it on. It was looking better but not finished yet. I needed more blue and splashed some blue on there and then finished it off with metallic silver spray. That worked and I knew it was finished. It has a very urban feel. Almost a feeling of graffiti or colors you might see painted in a new york city alley. This work of art is on sale for $159.

These 3 pieces were created after I returned home from the Casino. The Borgata is one of my favorite places to go.  It is beautiful and elegant. I am a slot machine junky. Not a good thing when you live 45 minutes from Atlantic City! But I have self control for the most part. Yah Right :0) The Borgata  has so many artistic architectural elements, interior spaces and magnificent art from lucky artists who were fortunate enough to have their work displayed there. If you have never been to the Borgata and you LOVE ART, then you will be in for a treat. The blown glass chandeliers hanging from the ceiling are so fantastic, you could just get a drink and spend your night gazing at them.

After being inspired, I used texture and applied it once then coated it with black acrylic paint. the second step was applying the texture again and then coating it with multi colored paints. The 3rd step was applying the texture again and the rest is a secret recipe. Let me put it this way, it took 2 days to complete. It is really eye catching and wonderful for modern spaces. To view this piece in a room or to check out its price and buy, please visit my etsy shop. Thanks for visiting my blog. Stay tuned for more new work coming his week. ~~CHEERS
