Beaming with Abundance by jayalders Beaming with Abundance by jayalders
I am proud to share with you my newly finished oil painting, “Beaming with Abundance”. I started this piece right before our trip to Australia kind of on a whim. Well, here’s how this all came about…(insert storytelling music here)

Let me go back a few months…I was (and still am) working on another painting which I’ve been super stoked on. When I got to my studio, ready to paint, brushes in hand, I discovered that the other piece was still too wet to work on from the previous session. (For those of you whom have never oil painted, let me tell you…it’s quite a lesson in patience.) But I was determined and motivated to do some painting, I felt the creative juices flowing.

I remembered bringing in some newly made wood panels the day before, so I grabbed one and threw it up on the easel. Then comes the part that people ask me about most…‘What do I paint?‘… Hmm… ‘Artist block’ was not about to have it’s way with me this time and with a trip to Australia coming up soon, I had plenty of inspiration. So without one bit of sketching, pre-planning or hesitation, I just started painting like a mad-man.

To make a long story short, my painting sessions were cut short with my journey across the globe and some freelance projects that have been hanging over my head. Nevertheless, upon returning and getting settled back in, I picked up my brushes again with my new Aussie memories fresh in my mind. Byron Bay, the sunsets, the private coves, the intrigue and romance and the overwhelming feelings of abundance & gratitude

So, since then, amongst other things, I have been working to bring this spontaneous creation to life. I hope you like it ! :)

How come I see this image in pink?
The small icon where "previews" the image to go to this page seems much sunnier (yellower)...
Do you know of a way to fix it, or is it supposed to be pink like this?

Also, it looks very cool... and I myself think the yellower one (which I see as a preview) looks better, even though that looks more cliche.

I love how your work has a real pull to it. Kind of makes you feel like your being wrapped up in the middle. I really like your detailing of the waves and clouds to where they look real but at the same time surreal and over exaggerated. Well done :)

Why is the thumb fully coloured (which I like better) and the full view is so pinkish?

There's something about really excellent "surf" imagery (I don't want to pigeonhole)...makes me want to strap on my Churchills, get into my weirdo swim stuff & body surf til I can't move
