This one is entitled, “The Bell Tolls.” I love the vibrancy of the colors and lines here juxtaposed with the black background. This piece delights me.

DWS no. 5 (2022)

7 Dec

“Drawing with scissors…” work #5. Henri Matisse, near the end of his life & career, started creating art images from gouache painted pieces of paper & then cutting those colorful pages into shapes & designs. That technique has been truly inspiring to me. Really enjoying playing with my construction paper cutouts.

Fractured (2022)

This is a new piece. Cut construction paper on white card stock. Learning to make paper do what I used to count on my brushes for.

This is a mixed media watercolor and acrylic on paper. This piece came together nicely and as always with some happy little artistic serendipities along the way

A new piece. Charcoaled out the lines then painted them in black. Fed color in slowly working a fairly limited palette.

Another new digital media abstract art piece.  Wish time allowed for actual brushes & paint.  Soon I hope, but until then…

Keep Burning (2015)

Passion is essential to leading and living a fulfilling life.  For me, there is nothing I put my hand to that I am more passionate about than art.  I love painting.  I am a completely untrained, self-taught painter but I have made it my full intention to learn as much as I can about the art of painting and to grow as a painter.  My most recent work represents a departure from my most recent season of kind of strict pen and ink and watercolor geometric abstract pieces.  I embrace this as moving into a season of growth as an artist/painter.  I would say I have experienced this transition numerous times since setting out to paint in 2013.

This painting seeks to incorporate a bold, even unorthodox use of color, and the playfulness of line, against a backdrop of unconventional shapes that emerged onto the page rather than being there as the result of careful placement and planning.
