New work in paint

Artwork by Andrea Goodman

Painting on wood panels is my latest favorite way to explore paint. The texture of the wood and the way it wicks moisture along it's grain makes it interestingly different than painting on paper. I'm really enjoying this exploration with paint on wood.

Autumn Pond with Duck Wakes, acrylic on wood by Andrea Goodman
My most recent work, the Autumn Ponds series of two paintings featuring autumn leaves floating in a pond, and the interaction of the surface of calm water with the environment in different ways. The wakes that ducks leave on the water as they land, and the concentric rings left when something drops into the water, are created with irridescent and silver metalic paint and a high gloss sealant.

Winter 2022

winter landscape, shades of grey, acrylic on wood panel
Sometimes it looks as if the entire world is shades of grey in the winter, and I did a series of paintings to celebrate the greyscale landscape of winter on Vancouver Island.

grey rain
Square wood panels give an intersting opportunity, to hang paintings in different ways. One of these two paintings of rain can be hung from a corner, or not. Art that can be hung in more that one direction is an interesting challenge.

Autumn 2021

2 Autumn themed paintings by Andrea Goodman on wooden panels painted in 2021
I love to watch the change of seasons, but autumn is my favorite for the inspiration provided by the colours of nature.

Autumn field 2021
A row of trees along the edge of a field in a common sight in rural areas, trees provide shelter for crops and farmers often select trees that aren't native to the area, so colours around fields are often more varied than in wooded areas. The light of autumn is special on the west coast with sunlit rain showers and sudden bursts of sunlight through clouds.

Autumn laneway 2021
Lane ways and driveways are often sheltered with trees in farm country... where I grew up they helped stop snow from drifting into lane ways, but here on the milder west coast they still provide shelter. This lane way of poplars captured my eye.

Autumn Rainshower 2021
The amazing and awe inspiring sight of rain falling in sunshine is a west coast treat I never tire of. It can be gloomy, dark and drizzling one moment, then out comes the sun and *presto* the sky is alight with falling diamonds, it's magical. That's what I tried to capture in this painting, Autumn Rain shower 2021.
