Painting Inspired by Painter Mark Gould

I recently discovered the work of wonderful artist, Mark Gould,  www.markgouldart.com.  He is such a wonderful painter who specializes in colorful abstract acrylics.  I was inspired to try an acrylic painting in his style and came up with this one today.  This is VERY similar to his paintings, but was not directly copied.  Tomorrow I plan to come up with a completely original painting inspired by him.

This painting is 7" x 5" and it is painted on a canvas panel in Craft Barrel liquid acrylics - not the best paints for this type of painting, but all I have in acrylics.

Quite honestly, I love this piece, Barb. The colors are magical and they highlight the same magic in the setting. Truly gorgeous!
