“Agave by the Sea” – acrylic on canvas 1220x915mm
The first painting in the Succulents in the Flow series , this is a contemporary semi-abstract acrylic painting of Agave. It is a riot of colours and it is sure to brighten any room. With a background full of bubbles like those found in pouring style paintings without the silicone (some artists use silicone oil in their artwork and this is not recommended by manufacturers as it impacts the integrity of the acrylic paint in the long term). The edges are painted in a bright blue which helps to create the shadows that float frames are known for.
This painting has been professionally framed by Highly Strung Picture Framing & Art Supplies in an Oak Float Frame. A float frame is a stylish picture framing technique that leaves a gap between the canvas and the frame. The shadow line adds depth to the image and the image appears to be floating within the frame, hence the name.
