The Expansive Beauty Around Us

by jameswalk

This new mixed media painting is available here:

The vast majority of my art inspiration comes from everyday experiences and this new piece, combining elements of abstraction, gestural painting, and illustration was partly inspired by photographs that I made recently of a Rhinoceros.  It was the first time I had ever been close to a Rhino and I had no idea how generally peaceful and gentle they are.  For the most part they spend their time roaming the wilderness in contemplative solitude and the ones that I observed seemed to have a very meditative state of mind.

This 18″x22″ piece was created using acrylic paint, aerosol, copper leaf, colored pencils, and ink.
