This is a 6 panel acrylic on board painting overall size 42 x 60 inches or 107 x 152 cms.
Here it is with a black background.
I have been reluctant to show this artwork of mine because it does not seem to have a lot going on in it. Well the title The Silence came to me and that changed everything.
The silence should have nothing going on with it. But as I examine this painting and compare it to silence it is buzzing with activity, noise and energy, colour and movement. It is just not as bold as my usual work so maybe it means silence for me.
I’m not sure how The Silence comes across the internet. Maybe you need to be in front of it to get the full effect……….of silence.
Do you find it more silent with a white or black background or is there any difference?
Can we ever be truly silent?

I feel the black pulls your eye into the silence and it’s more interesting visually to me.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Black seems to be the popular choice. Many thanks Robert
Perhaps more silent with the white background. But I prefer the black background.
Black has it but I do love white. Best wishes, Robert

Well, I’ll also go with black. It seems to focus the eye on the painting itself more.
Thanks Mike, I think colour theory say that too (Geothe’s etc.) but I studied it a long time ago. Still there is nothing like our personal reactions. Best wishes, Robert
