"Sassy As Salt Water Taffy 02" Summer 2022 is drawing near its completion but that favourite sweet of Darlene's was invented in the 1800s and is widely enjoyed to this day. The soft and minimal colour which is a newer palette for her is gesturally brushed on the surface. The ocean floor flooded a boardwalk shop and the taffy was soaked in the sea foam. During the cleanup, someone asked if there was some taffy for sale and a joke was spoken that we have some salt water taffy. She took it to the beach to share with her friends and the rest is history.

"Consistency in my art is following my vision at that moment." Abstract, bold, joy-filled, spontaneous, powerful and gestural. Words to describe this contemporary abstract artist’s paintings. They are one of a kind and pulled from her creative imagination. ARTIST STATEMENT “Abstraction in a painting is the emotional creative thoughts, ideas and hues positioned to initiate conversation and invite you to the artist’s heart” Not all stories are written with words... Sometimes it is with shape, colours and lines. HER INSPIRATION Of course living so close to a body of water the turquoise and deep blues, greens and neutrals of the sand, beach and trails are part of the inspiration for the artist’s paintings. Darlene’s paintings are also pulled from her gardens and love of soft pinks in Peonies and the boldness of Clematis. Autumn crinkled leaf hues noticed on her walks are also part of a painting at some point. She gathers all of these ideas shapes of stones, ripples of the lake, cloud hues with violets and purples and of course the sunsets in her area. The golds and orange from the sun saying good night and the deep forest leaf greens, and crimson are all part of her repertoire. Colours, shapes and lines are often gathered from fashion to integrate later. HER TECHNIQUE There can be many layers of acrylics with ink, pen, pencil, charcoal and tea or coffee-stained print added to a mixed media creations of this artist. The majority of her paintings are acrylic with layers of swirls or brush strokes with various brush sizes and sometimes the artist’s hands or palms. Each of these movements adds to the growing depth of the work. With her mixed media, the hidden illegible script or notes sometimes are in the graffiti style that she often uses. In each of her paintings, the titles and the layers, welcome you into her world as she tells her story. Many of her originals are large-scale and vibrant. Bold thick acrylic in some areas with layers of complementary hues or hues that surprise you when they are side by side. You find yourself drawn into the art and its story and smile at the boldness of some of the colours she uses.
