Mixed Media on Canvas.
36" x 48" x 1.5"
"Ladies' Night, is part of my cocktail collection. It’s a bright and bold mixed-media painting on canvas. I’ve used layers of pencil, gesso, acrylic paint and house paint. The painting extends over the sides of the canvas. Varnished and wired, ready to hang. I’ve signed it on the back.
For me, art is everything. Art is life.
Art is beauty. Art is passion and joy. Art is fun.
Art is everywhere. Art is a celebration, a vacation, a cocktail.
Art is a dream. Art is hope.
Art is life.
My mixed media abstract paintings are optimistic. They are a journey into my imagination. As an introvert, my inner world is where I’m always most at home. With paint on canvas and paper, I escape into a place of beauty, joy, and magic. Each painting consists of layer upon layer of acrylic paint, sometimes with the addition of other media such as graphite, wax crayon, china marker, house paint, and collage papers. These works are intuitive in nature: as I work I combine spontaneity with an intention to create a pleasing harmonious balance."
