OAK HYDRANGEA: I don't know if you have ever seen these but I have several of these beauties showing off their stuff in my back yard. Inspired by their large leaves and cone shaped blossoms, I had to get painting. I did take a few liberties when creating this abstracted painting. I incorporating gold leaf in the background and let the water and paint mix before my eyes while dripping through the layers and scratches making up the leaves. Soon autumn will turn these lush leaves to crimson and golds... hmmm, sounds like more inspiration.
Artist Biography Ann is a contemporary painter residing in St. Louis, Missouri. Her focus is primarily but not exclusive to abstract images. Her artistic process began as a child through summer focused art classes and blossomed into a true passion in high school. She attended both Southeast Missouri State University and Southern Illinois University in Carbondale focusing on an art degree. Following college she spent 3 months is Auckland, New Zealand painting and experiencing the life of a kiwi (native New Zealand-er). She then followed her heart to Walnut Creek California. After a short year in beautiful Northern California, she found herself in St. Louis where she still resides today. Life fuels her inspiration and takes the form of textures and vibrant color combinations in her abstract work. Ann exhibits her work locally around St. Louis and has shown in the national Abstract Exhibition hosted by Mark Arts in Wichita Kansas. Several of pieces will be available for public viewing at Des Peres Hospital in St. Louis through the summer and fall, 2017.
