Aretha Franklin became known as the Queen of Soul in the late 1960’s after releasing top tunes like “Respect”, “Chain of Fools” and “You Make Me Feel Like (A Natural Woman)”. Her easily recognizable soulful soprano earned her 18 Grammy awards as she sold over 75 million records worldwide. This was painted in multiple layers with acrylic paint with light textural elements. I hope it will convey Aretha's overall sense of glamour and panache. This work is on a 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas. Ready to hang.

I’m hooked on vibrant color and bold, sweeping, powerful brush and palette knife strokes. I take a modern approach to impressionism, exploring representational subjects with a spontaneous abstract twist. I also favor the freedom of abstract expressionism and creating compositions with freewheeling brush strokes. The creativity in “blurring the lines” of reality is the signature of my work. My own style and intention is to bring a passion, drama, and energy to a painting so that it catches your eye from across the room! I think of painting as part painting and part sculpting. The textures in a painting can play as strong a role as the colors in the creative process. I also mix in techniques like pouring, dripping, splattering, layering, cracking, and scraping in many of my paintings. I use acrylic paint predominantly for its versatility. I am also exploring more oil works of late and mixing mediums. I studied commercial art in college before life changed direction and raising a family and making a living in the business world took center stage. In my “Awakening”, I circled back to my real passion, working as a full time artist. It has been a wondrous and wonderful journey!
