Ready to Hang

Cinco de Mayo measures 30"x30". This festively colored painting on canvas is stretched on 1.5" wood bars. The acrylic paint has been applied heavily to the canvas and is enhanced with scratched out details that reveal underlying layers of paint. The colorful liveliness and movement of the design brings to mind the celebration of Mexican victory over French occupation.

This large painting is wired and ready to hang. The gallery-wrapped sides are painted in a gray/black Micaceous iron oxide that give the painting a finished look. It is signed on the side, dated on the back and does not need to be framed. Acrylic varnish has been applied to protect the beauty of the painting.

When most people think of abstract art, they tend to think of art that is difficult to understand without an esoteric explanation by a highbrow, big city art critic or created by an angst driven starving artist in a dusty garret. That is not the kind of abstract art I like to create. My original paintings are usually inspired by nature or music and are intended to lift the spirit. Strong composition, visual texture, bold use of color, and trusting my intuition are just some of the elements that I employ in creating works that elicit emotional responses from viewers. My work, at times, may be subtle, and at other times vibrant and bold. I am a prolific painter and credit my ability to master a variety of techniques to my experience as an art teacher. My journey as an artist began a long time ago. After several years spent teaching art to high school students and several more years raising our 3 sons, I was finally able to devote myself to creating art. What initially started as a project to decorate my own home, quickly became a full-time business of supplying custom art to interior designers. In time, I "discovered" the internet and began showing my work to the world. My original paintings are found in collections throughout the US and Europe. Be assured that you are purchasing an original work of art, created with only the finest professional artist materials. "To create a powerful and moving abstract image is a gratifying experience for any artist. To have that image appreciated by the viewer is an even greater joy." Filomena Close
