Painting: Acrylic, Paper, Collage, Paint on Paper, Other.
This piece is acrylic paint on heavyweight printmaking paper. It was inspired during preparation for a mural I was asked to create for a maritime museum. Although the project was eventually cancelled, the process of creating works that would evoke the ocean, sailboats, the skyline - "real things" - gave me, an abstract artist, an opportunity to see and visually interpret the world in a new way. My use of layering and creating texture created the effect of a bright, sunny day. My use of collaging the sailboat increased the dimensionality of the piece and had the overall effect of a work that is both realistic and abstract simultaneously.
