Dancing Barefoot - 24" x 36" acrylic abstract painted with calculated organic geometric shapes situated to make the eye travel from top to bottom.
'112 Days After' is a 24"x18" ink abstract that was commissioned as a companion piece to 'Fireworks'. I had so much fun with theses that I plan to create more. I love working with a calame, a bamboo reed dip pen.
The commissioned painting made it back from the framers and installed in it's beautiful new home. 'Catalina's Light' is an acrylic 42"x74" modern abstract framed in a white floating frame. The actual painting was painted 48"x80" allowing for three inches on each side to be wrapped around on stretcher bars. There was so many under layers to this piece that I lost count bring each layer that peeks through spontaneous interest to this recreated piece from my original painting 'Dawn's Light'. With all of the thin under layers applied to this piece it looks like an oil painting. Thank you to my clients for sharing. _Love
I'm so excited about working on my latest collection of minimal works inspired by nature. I have so many ideas running through my head I have to start making notes to myself. I have spent years of studying the mid-century masters and doing this and that. Now I can't help but feel that I am finally ready to concentrate on this project that will define my work of minimalism. As I paint I will share. Until then, I will post some of my older works. This watercolor here is titled 'Destiny' it's a small watercolor with silver ink that I painted in 2014.
This piece was a 48" x 60" commissioned painting. My client wanted jewel like tones with gold leaf foil designed like my original color spots. She graciously sent me a photo of it after she had it framed. This was an amazing project.
Diptych, original modern abstract color field paintings, titled 'Gold Field I & II' by Victoria Kloch, gold and white. These paintings are 8"x10". Paint used gold metallic Winsor Newton and white by Golden Acrylic.
This commission piece is now on it's way to Florida. It was so large that I painted it un-stretched so it could be shipped rolled. The size of this acrylic painting measures 48"x 80". Once it makes it to the framer it will stretch it down to fit 42"x72". The photo of this piece doesn't even come close to showing the under-layering. Since this image was taken I did touch up the green shapes a bit, though I didn't have the time to re-take and up date the photo. I'm hoping once it is framed my clients will share a photo of this hanging up in their beautiful room.
With so much going on in the world, it's hard to concentrate and stay focused on the beautiful side of life. I gave up regular television a few years ago to be free of the madness from commercials that bombard us with things that they tell us we need. Now I stream all of my movies and watch only what I want to see.
Like it or not, world events have their impact on all of us. Fortunately, I have my work to bring me back to that quiet space of color and paint making my time even more precious to me.
As I continue visiting some of my older paintings, this one was titled 'California Dreamin'. A modern abstract, 30" x 40" painted with acrylic. I was happy how the thin layering of paint worked here. I wonder, what do my viewers see in this?
I've stepped out of my usual color palette with Amber Waves and I enjoyed every minute of it. Red is such an amazing color with the pow factor. Add gold and you've got a dramatic journey for the imagination to wander and re-visit. Amber Waves 30"x48" a work of modern expressionism by Victoria Kloch. This piece sold and will be showcased in a wine tasting room.
Transcend 24" x 36" acrylic painting. This small painting brought me big attention. It was featured in The Coastal Living Magazine - Must Haves in May 2015. After that feature it was a whirlwind of re-creating commission orders. Actually there was so many that I lost count. Only in my wildest of dreams, this was very exciting.
It's Wednesday and my second post on this new blog. I'm showing you the painting Now and Zen - 16" x 20" that was sold in 2013.
I loved using this soothing, minimal palette and I plan on painting a similar one only much larger soon.
Have a great day I'm off to work on a 42" x 74" commission piece. I have a busy day ahead.
