Garden of Dreams – Acrylic painting by Nancy Tang

Garden of Dreams is one of my newest pieces. If you’ve seen some of my glass paintings, I was attempting to emulate that process, but with paint. I think it was fairly successful. I strive to make every small square of space ‘work’ by itself, while also having the entire piece ‘work’ as one whole. I like colors to really sing next to each other.  I’ve used a gallery wrapped canvas and painted the edges as well,I’m really liking gallery wraps.

I build up layer after layer until I think the piece is done, so the final product might not look anything like when I started. It’s always an journey of discovery. This piece is currently hanging in 11 Central, a lovely restaurant in Bangor, ME.
