"Epiphany" - Abstract Acrylic Triptych

Recently I've had the great desire to start painting abstracts and "Epiphany" was my first completed piece. Sometimes you can really surprise yourself with what interests you as well as the new directions creativity can take if you just let yourself run wild. I'm really having so much fun with abstracts that I'm currently working on my 3rd one right now. Anything is possible if you just open your mind to new ideas.
This painting measures: 12" h x 21" w x 1 1/2" d and is currently at Celebrations Gallery:

They are beautiful! I think the red, yellow and blues have so much energy! They would look great in the room with my two red sofas, wouldn't they? ♥

Suzanne said...

Wow Ruth! Those are gorgeous. Inspired to "try something different, and run wild" now too! Thanks!

Wow this is beautiful! I've never done abstract but I have a friend who wants me to make an abstract piece for him so I'll have to try. You did great with it!!

Hi Ruth,
Your abstract is awesome. You are so right about our painting directions. When my son purchased his home 8 years ago, I painted a large canvas abstract for him in colors to go with his eclectic decor. It was different for me of course, but I loved every minute of doing something out of my category,
Can't wait to see your next project.
Have fun~~ your talents are amazing!

Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie
