From his Mother of Pearl Series, Austin Allen James brings us “Oyster Bed.” This watery abstract painting features washes of sky blue and gray, with touches of metallic to create an ethereal glow. Subtle layers of olive green and shimmering gold paint invite movement and lyricism to the piece, for which the artist is well known. This mixed media painting on board is coated with a resin clear coat to preserve and enhance the complex layers of this one of a kind abstract. The glossy surface invites the viewer to experience the artwork “through a looking glass.” This tranquil and meditative painting can easily serve as the foundation of a well appointed roomscape. Choose the “Oyster Bed” style in the size of your choosing, with a 2″ depth. Each painting is made to order as a one of a kind commission; inherent variations make each piece it’s own unique treasure. Contact us for custom sizes, available at 1 dollar per square inch.
