"Movement in Black and Red" by Debe Abbott. This painting has long been a favorite of mine. An acrylic on canvas, the piece measures 24" X 36" and is framed in a beautiful black frame with a gold leaf lip. The painting is stunning and classic abstract expressionism.
Debe is perhaps best known for her pastel landscapes but she is a versatile artist and spent most of the late 1980's and the 1990's painting contemporary abstract works. She had considerable success at first with Elhoff Gallery in Syracuse where she sold fifty three paintings over a three year period. Later at Roselawn Galleries in Pittsford, NY she sold well over one hundred paintings during a thirteen year relationship with the gallery. Many of these paintings were abstract paintings although more decorative in style than the classic look of this bold piece.
Debe's work is currently available at Fingerlakes Gallery, Canadaigua, NY, Margie's Muse, Jamaica, VT., Vintage Art Seneca, SC and at her studio gallery in Central Square and on-line at abbottsstudio.com or at her blog http://debeabbottsartblog.blogspot.com/.
I suppose it's only right that I give Debe my first Guest Artist spot on this blog. Afterall she is exceptionally talented and has put up with me for 27 years and counting.
