Abstracts

Originals abstracts are available from my GreenMonBrushstrokes.etsy.com store.


The following is a gallery of previously sold abstracts.  If you are interested in art cards or prints, please contact me (brushstrokes@green-monster.ca).

I'm happy to announce that my abstracts have been featured on the 2016 Local Wishlist, the buy-local holiday shopping guide to Nova Scotia.


My abstracts are often created after I’ve spent a few hours on more detailed paintings. At that point, I don’t want to think too much and just want to throw some paint around or just use up my leftover paint. So instead of trying to control everything, I let the paint and brush do whatever they want to do. As such, these paintings often take me unexpected places. They are often about colour, strokes and movement and I never know what image will emerge once I start these.

These paintings are one of kind. Due to the spontaneity of the moment; I can’t seem to reproduce them exactly especially the mood.

Your attraction to an abstract is personal; you may find that you prefer the painting to be in a different orientation than how I may have presented it. As such, I often place my signature in a discrete area within the painting so that you are free to turn the painting in whichever orientation that talks to you the most, whenever you wish.
