This piece was accepted into the Kirkland Art Center's member show. I painted these cupboard doors last year, but for some reason I have been entering them in shows this year, and they have been getting accepted. This is a cupboard door from our remodeled kitchen, plaster, acrylic and found objects. It was a lot of fun to create.
This is something I just finished. I continually return to the figure, but always a little different. This was my first attempt to use acrylic ink, and I am working on a couple others with ink as well.
I will be at the Artist's Garage Sale, which is at the Schack Center in Everett on this Saturday, June 16, from 9-4. These and other paintings will be wildly discounted. I don't want to take anything home!
I work primarily with acrylic on canvas, board or watercolor paper. My style is loose and very colorful. I consider myself an experimental painter and often incorporate elements such as ink, graphite, paper, beads, clay and whatever else I happen across. Whether I am painting a landscape, still life or abstract, the subject is simply a vehicle for the color and stroke. I work from my imagination and go wherever the painting takes me,working on several paintings simultaneously. I call my work Joyful Art because creating it brings me such joy.
