2 canvas abstract 32" x 20"

I had this posted in the Acrylics forum recently but thought I should show it here. I did have it for sale on eBay but it didn't sell. If you want to see detail shots you can still see the auction listing for the next 28 days or so, if you click HERE.

Heavily textured acrylic, pastel, watercolour and ink on canvas.

C & C welcome.

The detail shots of the texture made this piece for me.
Your turquoise is stunning.

Interesting composition. I wasn't sure of the color interaction at first, but after coming back to the painting several times, I like the color mixture.

I really like the distortion of the yellow bits by the scratches as though it created a new musical note.

Re: 2 canvas abstract 32" x 20"

I like every thing about this except the red head topping the cross. It makes me question and wonder about the meaning of everything else exhibited in the painting. If this was your intension...very well done.
If we knock on the door until it opens, not taking no for an answer, our lives will be transformed as we step up into a higher awareness.
