Ready to Hang
The title, Cogs, came to me as soon as I finished this piece. The vertical and horizontal lines seemed to moving side to side and up and down because of the circles I had layered over and under them. I added the gears or "cogs" to complete that concept.
I don't always know when to stop working on a piece, but once I perceived the mechanical motion going on, I knew it was finished.
I've always had a knack for color and design. After decades applying my eye and skills to making interiors warm and inviting - with pops of unexpected color and sometimes whimsy - I'm now working with color in a much more personal way through my paintings. I work mainly with acrylics, but I also blend different mediums, materials and even found objects to create texture, depth, and interest. Since moving to San Diego in 2012, I've been inspired and have been able to dedicate more time to what once a fantasy, then a hobby, and now my passion. My pieces are unique and develop from my own appreciation for how colors play with and against each other. They are also influenced by my moods - so you may find some that inspire energy, others that are serene and calm, and others that are more carefree and fun. Hopefully you will find one that speaks to you and will find a spot in your space..
