"Happiness" 18" X 12" fluid acrylic

Happiness by April M Rimpo

Fluid Acrylic
18" X 12"

This painting in the "Tapestry at the Mall" series is a celebration of the Happiness that can come with friendship. These women were chatting and laughing as they walked through the mall. I remember they made me smile as they passed. I do believe joy can be contagious if we  pay attention to others' moods.

This is the first painting where I included some scribing in the background. It is intermixed with textural patterns so you will see it only if you are drawn in and spend some time looking at the details.

To emphasize the sense of happiness and good times I chose a primarily warm color scheme and used a large yellow circle in the background behind the women's heads. Other colored circles were added to balance the large one.

I'd love to hear about your reaction to this painting. Please provide a comment below.

  1. Thanks for sharing the work and the thoughts that went into IT!
    I "dig" the abstract aspects with the realism!!

    1. Thanks, Sue. I've been trying to mix abstraction beith realism. I really appreciate your feedback.


I look forward to hearing from you. - April
