abstract oil painting



Mike Brouse, Woodstock
Sailing Stones, 2022

 “I am an expressive abstract painter. My intention was to paint without an object in mind. I did that by playing with the medium. Oil paint is very tactile. I pushed and pulled the oil pigments over all sides of the canvas. I splattered solvents and let gravity create rivers through the wet oil paints. I have blended new colours and textures that I never imagined before. With a discerning eye, I looked for what elements to add in or take out. From chaos I was able to achieve my design. Sailing Stones suggests elements of solid forms melding together with vibrant movement.”
