My inspiration in creating this painting stems from my first close up encounter of Asian art while visiting a gallery in Laguna Beach, Ca. I am intrigued with the 30 degree angles and parallel lines seen in such art. I want to convey serenity in the misty mountains along with peace and solitude in the reflection of the red tree in the the tranquil waters. Sand from Long Beach adds rough texture to contrast the smooth mist nestled among the jagged mountains. Glass beads gives a little sparkle to the peaks. I enjoy feeling the texture of this painting. I hope you find peace and tranquility as I do with this solitude piece.
I am a versatile artist from Long Beach, California using acrylic paint as my primary medium of choice. My genre include representational impressionism, abstract, and dimensional (3D touch me) paintings. I enjoy exploring different styles of art, from fine paintbrush strokes to painting with my fingers. Although I have a degree in the sciences, I have always been an artist by heart. I have loved drawing since elementary school and have been a photographer during my college years. I first picked up a paintbrush at a local Paint and Sip class. This sparked a dormant creativity within me that exploded into an obsession. My paintings are exhibited in several Southern California galleries and am a resident artist at Brushstrokes and Beverages Studio. I have public collections at Harbor UCLA Medical Center, Saint John's Health Center of Providence and private collections throughout the country.
