I created this piece of art to remind myself that life is a journey and a mystery that unfolds. I chose a misty and dreamlike color palette with subtle touches of brighter color in the bottom portion of the painting to display that there is always hope in the journey...reminding me to take a breath and exhale.
“My passion is to create images that illicit a memory, a place, a time, a moment, a melody or even an unmet desire. The goal is that when someone views one of my pieces it engenders thoughts of a place in which that person would want to live…home. When a viewer comments on one of my paintings saying, ‘I want to live in that place. . .I want to live there,’ I know that what needed to be accomplished in this outward form of expression indeed was.”
Ellis uses many layers of paint in her work resulting in a rich, dense, surface with a dreamlike appearance. Enchanting in its simplicity, Ellis endeavors to create a world where grace transforms reality into an inviting and peaceful environment. By combining light subtle tones with intense color variations Ellis imbues her work with depth and a mystical quality.
Professional quality oil paints are used insuring that the color does not fade with exposure to sunlight. Painting is signed on the front and is also signed and dated on the back. This is on a gallery wrapped canvas with a 1.5 inch profile. The painting does not have to be framed. Exhale is the original work of art and not a reproduction or print.
