In this video, I share the creative process behind one of two recent artworks commissioned by a couple as ‘statement pieces’ to adorn the large white walls of their soon-to-be-completed architecturally designed home. The brief was “we want it to be a landscape from your mind.”
You’ll see the painting evolve from inception to completion and learn more about the story which inspired the painting.
Fun! Fun! Fun is a 1600 x 1100 abstract painting on canvas. As you will see, it is beautifully and lovingly layered with sensuously sultry glazes of acrylic
Fun! Fun! Fun! embodies the high-vibe energy of flow, optimism, happiness and joy that our souls ache for after the tumultuous, confining past years of Covid lockdowns.
The painting was completed during one of the worse New Zealand summers on record, during particularly wet and stormy days as driving rain pummeled the studio. In the ‘landscape of my mind,’ I looked to rays of sunshine, bright rainbows stretching across the sky, and brilliant shades of flowers.
Each touch of colour brightens our day and hints of fresh promise. Colour brings with it an intrinsic, uplifting sense of hope and optimism—and yes, fun!
“Wow! It’s beautiful! Don’t change a thing!” the couple told me when they saw the first completed piece
“We absolutely love the painting. Just so exciting to be part of the process. So great to work with you with lots of fun discussions too. Would highly recommend commissioning a piece of art by Cassandra as a way to depict a landscape from a mind in such a fun and beautiful way.”
Fun! Fun! Fun! Is Inspired by my love of the natural landscape, the pioneering abstract expressionism of Helen Frankenthaler in the 60s and the stunning sea views from my gallery and the couple’s new home. This is an intuitively inspired happy painting.
This painting is sold—commissions are welcome. https://www.cassandragaisford.com/commissions/
