Beach Activity, Acrylic painting by Bente Hansen
Happy Summer everyone. I hope you are enjoying the wonderful weather.
I am blessed to live by the ocean. The change in the environment can be quite drastic from one hour to the next. I have figured out while pouring these acrylic paintings that even if I am loving the color combinations, if the painting does not speak to me of some aspect of nature then it becomes a do over. The painting can conjure the feeling of moving water, wind, landscape, trees. It doesn't matter as long as there is some aspect of nature in it.
I started this painting upside down meaning for it to be a big sky type of abstract. Then as it was drying I changed my mind and like it better this way. I suppose you could hang it one way for a while and then the other way for a while. I am sure they will both speak to you.
Blessings for a great day.
