Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Household, Pencil on Canvas.

Beach house, Acrylic and pencil on canvas.
This painting combines pattern, shape and design in a warm, nuetral palette. Whimsical and fun! Measures 24 x 24 x 1.5 inches. Signed, dated and titled on the back, wired and ready to hang.

My birthday is in June, and every year my family knows what I want for my birthday. A weekend getaway at the beach. Some of the happiest times for me have been with my family at the Oregon coast in a beachfront rental.

My paintings are a combination of all the visual elements I love the most. Beautiful colors, interesting lines, shapes, patterns and marks as well as rich textures.
I begin my paintings by building up layers. I play hide-and-seek with many of my marks and colors, bringing them out, and covering them up, keeping the work spontaneously random and unexpected.
I paint, draw and collage until I begin to see an interesting, or beautiful composition taking shape.
It is usually at this later stage that the title, or name comes to me. I then put on the finishing touches with a few purposeful marks, paint strokes or collage elements to define the composition.
I strive to create a rich patina in my work. This feeling of history and age comforts and grounds me.
Thank you for viewing.
