ABSTRACT & MIXED MEDIA PAINTINGS

I love creating pieces with texture and anything else that makes you want to touch and explore.  I use professional grade acrylics and mediums in my abstracts.  For mixed media pieces, it can include acrylics, ink, chalk, pastel, charcoal, torn paper, and other items in my studio that will add depth, interest, and texture.  

Macchiato - abstract painting

The sides are painted black so framing is optional.  It is wired and ready to hang.  $1,200
