Abstract Oil Paintings

Hi Folks,

I've just had an email from the Director of Saatchi, Rebecca Wilson, informing me that she's selected another of my paintings for their latest collection.  The artwork "The Fallen" is the sixth piece to be selected for Saatchi collections. Its an abstract oil painting on canvas measuring 40 x 40 x 1.5" . It was painted  in predominantly warm tones of browns, yellows, golds and touch of blue with an initial light underpainting and finished with bold palette knife strikes.

Abstract Paintings on Canvas by Artist Simon Kenny

Hi Folks.

I've just completed a large abstract oil painting on canvas called " Oblivion" which is now listed on my website http://simonkenny.artweb.com . The painting measures 60 x 48", its texutred, richly coloured and themed around an apocalyptic event. I love painting these moody, dramatic abstracts as I feel I can pour out my thoughts on canvas then visualise them in reality.Its always facinating to hear what others see in each painting and I'm amazed by how diverse those opinions can be.

I'm currently working on another smaller oil painting measuring 40" x 30" which should be completed towards the end of this week and I have two colour burst pieces which I'm aiming to have finished shortly after.

"Oblivion", oil on canvas, 60" x 48"
Available via my website.

To make my paintings more accessible I have a new purchase option available which may be of interest. I understand as prices increase some of the expensive art works may become out of reach to those with limited budgets so I'm trying to offer a solution which may be of some use.

Details are as follow:


Should you see a painting you would like to purchase but have a limited budget payments can be made broken down in to a maximum of 4 installments, miminum of 1 payment per month accepted, maximum term of installments period 4 months.  Once the inital payment has been made and cleared the painting/s will be marked as reserved in your name until the final payment has been received at the end of the agreed term. Once the balance is cleared the work will be dispatched within 24 hours.

Please note should monthly payments be missed without prior agreement / arrangement a refund will be paid covering the received payments minus a 5% holding fee. The painting/s will then be re-listed as available for sale.

This offer is available on original paintings only and does not include prints.

Painting prices are negotiable ,within reason, as its fairly common practice to haggle a little, especially in todays market. Please understand I cannot offer discounts off paintings that are already on sale as some prices have already been reduced by up to 50%.

Simon Kennys Abstract Paintings

Hi Folks,

I've just listed a number of new abstract paintings on my Artweb site, http://simonkenny.artweb.com .

The last of the four paintings " Now and Forever" was created using oil and acrylic paint on a large 40 x 40" stretched canvas. The piece is heavily textured over a light underpainting. I built the colour up to required tones lightly brushing out the edges to achieve the soft cloud like detailt then finished with a little impasto work to give a strong punchy focal point .

Altered State, created on a 72" x 24" stretched canvas was also painted using oil and acrylic, Salvator and Cygnus are both soley oil paint. I rarely paint on small canvases like the two 36 x 24" pieces and I found it quite challenge not having the freedom such large canvaes offer. That said I was really pleased with the outcome of the two abstract paintings so I'll be creating similar size pieces in the near future.

All four paintings are currently available for sale and I've attached images below with relevant details. If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate in contacting me at simonkenny@eskayfineart.co.uk

Now and Forever 40 x 40" oil and acrylic on canvas.

Salvator 36 x 24" oil on canvas.

Altered State 72 x 24" Oil and acrylic on canvas.

Cygnus 36 x 24" oil on canvas.
