Acrylic on Canvas 27cm x 35cm (8″ x 14″)
I started painting a few years ago. To be honest, I started because I had just moved to Korea and it was cold and I was bored. At first look the blank canvas reminded me of my old home in Hawaii. Not sure but I think it was because it was freezing outside and back home one could go out anytime.
Looking out at the snow, I fondly tried to capture the image of coconut trees, ocean and islands. For some reason I painted the sun and moon and made it a night scene. When I was finished, the white sides of the canvas stood out so I painted them black – hence the name black edge art.
I started to look at others paintings and noticed most of them were of daytime or bright indoor themes. Not many paintings are done of night time images. So I started painting all the great places I’ve been as I remembered them at night. Some from various images some from my imagination.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. If you need more inspiration join me at http://www.onemeandream.com.
