From the Artist:

This painting has a multitude of dimensions.  I started with splitting the painting into 3rds, I wanted to give the piece more depth with not only texturing each section differently, but I then took the values deeper the further down the canvas went.

I used almost a cool, monochromatic pallet for this piece so the red coral would pop off the canvas and stand out due to its brilliant red color.

I then wanted to add a couple of warmer touches through out the piece for more balance, which I so loved.

I call this painting “Deception” because non intentionally I painting the piece, took a couple of steps back and saw two sets of eyes in the right section of the piece, I loved it, I think they look a bit creepy; they can deceive you and they just kinda appeared. I could not see these close up, but when you step back you can see them.

That is one of the unexpected joys of painting abstracts, what just kinda comes out sometimes. I had so much fun painting this piece and love the red coral.
