The Okanagan Valley is a very large original abstract painting done on three cradled wood panels. It was inspired by the beautiful colours and rolling landscapes of the Okanagan Valley (my home!).
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 must 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 each panel 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 easy to hang. Each panel has been signed on the front and back by the artist.
