Title: “A Ray of Light”
Original abstract painted wood panel
by Don Clark
This is a 2′ x 4′ colorful abstract painting on a textured raised wood panel 1.75 inches thick.
It is, truly, a handmade original from beginning to end. I start by making my own panels of 1/4″ hardwood plywood attached to a 1″ x 2″ select wood frame. This makes large panels lightweight, yet, strong, and with depth. After the panels are assembled, they are sanded and prepared for painting. This panel is textured with a gypsum compound to give the painting depth and to create colorful effects.
Once the panel is constructed, the artistic process begins. I devote a lot of time envisioning and planning my pieces, such as, to the design, colors, textures, effects, and finishes.This lends to a piece that is imaginative and aesthetically appealing.
Next, the most gratifying part of the process is putting my vision into action. Each panel is layered with a palette of paint colors to produce the desired end result. The rich blend of colors draws the eye and creates emotion. Most of my pieces are then finished with a clear coat, which protects the piece and accentuates the colors.
I take CUSTOM ORDERS for those who would like a specific piece. You may let me know your thoughts on size, design, colors, textures, effects, and finishes, and I will conceptualize them. I am available for large commercial pieces, as well as, custom home pieces.
I take great pride in my artwork and will not release a piece that is not of high quality. So, please buy with confidence.
Art can evoke emotion and I want to create a piece that makes your emotions come to life each day. I look forward to making you an original Artwork, which you can proudly display and admire with your friends and family.
