minimalist paintings for sale from the artist


Minimalism is the art of saying a lot with a little. Their apparent simplicity is challenging to the artist - one mark too many or too few and it does not work.

View these new minimal paintings and enjoy the space and a feeling that is difficult if not impossible to express in words. The art whispers its message which is a welcome change for many people who may live in a frantic world.

 I called this minimalist painting "Absolute" as I think it is a close as I can get to total minimalism right now. The challenge of too much or not enough is always present when I am painting particularly with minimal paintings - try one more shape and it is ruined. Perhaps I managed to quit whie I was ahead with this one?

Absolute Minimalism.

 Natural light and colours inspired me to paint this minimal painting. Dominated by shades of green with a simple yellow post gazing into infinate space - it is called Gaze.



 I called this minimalist painting Black is not Black  - the nuances of black paint are used here with a little red to create a painting that hopefully holds your attention and triggers your imagination.

How to paint a minimal painting? I do not think there is one way for all to follow, each of us should find their own way (I can help with my personal art tuition) but my post making a minimal painting shows my approach.


 This new minimal art is called Harbour Harmony. It was inspired by a cold day by the lake in Toronto. Everything that does not create cold empty space has been removed except for just a spot of warmth left for emphasis.

art of minimalism so simple

I am thoroughly enjoying my new minimal art. Minimalism is such a delicate process, if you put in too little it says nothing and if you put in too much then your message is confused. Such a challenge. I also love surrealism and I find myself combining the two.

Simplicity gives birth to inspiration. It is the quality of the very young and of the aged. One who is simple lives from the heart.

I called this minimalist painting  Lights and Brights. The large rectangle has lights and the borders brights but the title is not important. What matters is how and whether you the viewer engage and make your own interpretation.

The two examples of minimal art below are called Awakening and have similar designs. I am experimenting with colour and how it sets the feel of the painting. Do these two minimalist paintings feel the same? That's for you to decide.
