Wow, Hiria, this is a very dramatic piece.  Can you tell us a little more about it?
Hi Donna. It is 15" x 30" in size.  I have used knives in this painting, no brushes.  I mixed Atelier Impasto Gel with the paint which made the colour transparent and shiny.  Impasto gel is a lot of fun to play with, would definately recommend to try it. 
I used an old credit card to do the red stripes on top of the black.  There are several layers of colour until I got what I wanted.

Hi Hiria,  I like all the different ways you applied the paint here, using knives and a credit card.  It looks like you used a splatter technique also, with the streaks of black paint on top? 

I like the sense energy in your painting.  Thanks so much for sharing!
