This expressionistic painting is full of movement and has a lot of layers, texture, and mark-making. I used acrylic paint, plaster, glass beads, fabric and ink. The main colors are wine, yellow ochre and beige.

The work is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It is varnished and comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Hilma

Hilma Koelman has traveled the world, but always found herself coming back to the ocean. Her years living in Curacao, a tropical island in the Caribbean, provided endless inspiration for her art, from the deep turquoise of the water to the colorful buildings of the island. Now living in South Florida, Hilma uses her abstract paintings to express her passion and energy. She may go through states of happiness, struggling, or insecurity when she’s creating a work of art, but she always arrives at a feeling of satisfaction, at which point she knows the painting is finished.
