Abstract Art: Wildfire

Abstract Art by Sahra Hussain, title: Wildfire ( 28H X 30 W)

Wildfire is a abstract drip painting inspired by the forest and nature. Hiding within the wilderness are silver flames beneath the blackened burnt forest. The darkness seems to collapse as the silver flames keep burning.

This painting is entirely and abstract drip painting using two colors; metallic silver and black.  The drip shapes are formed to form a naturalistic scene like that of a forest. Rather than using red I used silver to represent flames.

This painting is highly textured using acrylic paint and water based metallic latex paint.  Each stroke was strategically placed and time and thought were given before making the next move.  While I thought it was too silver I thought it was wise to add black.
