With over 700 artists I'm painting in the Leslie Saeta 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. DAY 7

For a theme I've chosen abstract expressionist/impressionist explorations. I've painted many abstracts, but I feel I need to develop a consistent style. When I visit a gallery it is always the abstracts that catch my attention, particularly if they have an interesting colourful palette, so it's time I created my own series.

So here is "Paradise I", an abstract of volcanic beauty. The painting is finished to a high shine with Gamvar, museum quality varnish. There is a hint of Aztec about this painting, but I was also thinking of the volcanoes of Hawaii and Guatemala as I painted it. It is strange how some abstracts come together quickly and others take time to find their voice. This is one of the latter. I love the final colour combination and particularly enjoy the hints of gold iridescent paint and stamping.

I will ship this abstract series anywhere in the UK and North America, inclusive. Your purchase will arrive ready to mount, mat or frame as you choose. Should you prefer, I can ship to you ready to hang, please contact me for a quote.
