Figures or Flowers
Oil on Board
20 x 16", Framed: 28 x 24 x 1"
I was contemplating an old floral painting that I couldn't get to work, so I decided to see it in a new way. I looked at just the patterns, like you see in clouds, people and other figures became visible. What fun! Such a freeing experience on a tired old canvas.
I am a Professional artist with a Fine Art Degree and minoring in Education. Working for decades, I have done it all, teaching, wall murals, portraiture, plein air, commercial renderings, neon and plastic signs, floral design, fabric arts and jewelry. My experience in most mediums is extensive with oil, pastel and collage as favorites. I've received accolades and Gallery representation with sales to Hospitals, commercial projects and collectors throughout the States. I continue to paint, teach, and tenaciously study past masters. Now having fun is a priority, I am motivated to create a new body of work. These paintings will be a continuance of ideas developed back in college but with a more educated approach.
