The Okanagan Valley is a very large original abstract painting done on three cradled wood panels. It was inspired by the colours and rolling landscapes of my forever home - the beautiful Okanagan Valley.
This piece was created using a flip-n-drag acrylic pour technique. I started by applying solid paint colours to the panels. For each intersection, I filled a cup with Okanagan-inspired colours. The cups were inverted onto the panels and dragged along the intersections between two solid colours. As the paint slowly released from the cups, it left a mesmerizing path of colourful cells in its place. The areas of cells are framed in by an intricate lacing effect. Acrylic pouring is a challenging technique to do on a large scale because paint has to be applied and manipulated before it begins to dry - so I had to work very quickly!
Photos do not do this painting justice. You really need to stand in front of it for a period of time and allow your eyes to explore everything it has to offer.
The Okanagan Valley was finished using a high-gloss UV-resistant varnish which brings those colourful cells to life. Edges are painted a clean black. Each panel has a strong wire attached so it is ready to hang on your wall. Each panel has been signed on the front and back by the artist.
