Contemporary Abstract Expressionist Acrylic Painting by Brad Rickerby

Sliding Acrylic, 12 x 6" Acrylic on Canvas
Available for Sale

Being creative is great. I can sit down in front of a blank canvas and face a world of possibilities. Moments, or sometimes hours later, a new creation has formed. Almost as if by magic. For this creation I placed a number of liquid acrylics at the top of the canvas. Golden are almost too wet, for this application, Liquitex seems to work better. I spot other colors over the body of the canvas. Then I take a big palette knife and pull the paint from top to bottom. The results are always different and always produce great colors intermixtures!
