I am please to inform all my blog readers that I have sold my work Forest in Blue to a collector in Minnesota. This is actually my first work going to that state so thank you Ellen! This work is a great example of painting with a palette knife with big bold strokes giving the […]
The third work acquired by the collector in Georgia is entitled Shower The World With Blue. This work as so many of my work are is nature Inspired. The color combination I decided on is unique with lovely shades of blue, white and black backdrop. This work is done with gestural movements over a black and white background creating a effect of the blue raining down – hence the name: Shower The World With Blue. Thank you – Nestor Toro
This is the second piece that David, the collector from Georgia acquired. The work is called Perhaps a Sunset and measures 20 x 16 inches. Contemplative color field painting with lots of color blending, contrast and fine details. Textured with many layers of plaster to prime the canvas then applied acrylic paint with spatulas and palette knives creating very organic textures and forms. High quality Sennelier and Golden Acrylics and glossy finish. Relief texture truly a statement piece. You can probably tell that I had fun making this work! Thank you David for collecting my work!
Although the work is one of my “smaller” works measuring 20 x 16 inches you can easily see that it is quite powerful. Many think that only a large statement work can have the energy like this but if you stop and think about it I am sure that you can think of many walls in your home or office that could really benefit with the addition of a work of this size! Brighten up the space…get a work to motivate, inspire, or simply take some time each day to enjoy the color and motion!
I am happy to post that Shimmering Lights (In Paradise) has been sold to a collector via my relationship with Saatchi art gallery. I would like to congratulate Sarah in Chicago for acquiring this wonderful complex work! Thank you very much!
The work is Size: 69 x 38 inches and quite an amazing statement piece. It is a very textured abstract acrylic colorfield, with organic patterns and drips! The entire work is done by hand from the hand cut canvas, the hand applied gesso, and of course the seemingly endless drips and drops and spatters! Many colors contribute to the complexity of this work – blue, yellow, white, teal, and bit of other colors. Signed statement piece. Painted in 2017 by Nestor Toro in Los Angeles
