Abstract Painting – Fiery Sunset

Abstract Art by Regina Lord
Fiery Sunset
20 x 24 acrylic on canvas with wood trim

My very first abstract that didn’t turn into a painting of a girl or flowers, or something else.  It’s actually a painting, over a painting, over a painting.  I painted a girl (with papers, collage, stamps), maybe 6 years ago,  didn’t like it and immediately painted over it with another girl that I didn’t like.  I put it in the closet, where 5 years later, it was recently rediscovered. I was going to toss it because it had a lot of paint and paper textures — too much for another girl painting. Instead, I thought it would make a great experimental surface for an abstract painting.

Doesn’t it look great on my orange wall?!

Abstracts are so hard for me.  I usually want to keep going until it becomes something else.  I am very happy with this one though.  Something different, but with all my colors.

I also trimmed it with stained wood strips.  I find painting the sides to be very tedious, but also, the wood makes it feel all professional and substantial-like.

Now, I think I feel like sewing. Go figure. This strange desire to sew only happens a couple times a year. I’m thinking another new bag or apron or smock.
