Ground Swell - Original Abstract Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

Ground Swell
Acrylic/Mixed on Canvas

I painted this piece a couple of years ago.  Although the composition is a simple one, this painting has several complex elements that add to the overall design.  A palette knife was used to apply red and black paint in the center of the painting.  I also applied metallic gold leaf to draw the eye into the painting.  The background is an interesting experiment I did with diluted gesso and alcohol on a sand colored base.  The black, red and blue hard edge band in the lower part of the painting are a contrast to the overall free-flowing design of this work.  It doesn't show well in this image, but the red band has a "ribbed" textural pattern and the black band has been finished in glossy acrylic varnish.
