Ready to Hang
COLLAGE IN BLUE made a long journey to completion. I worked on it on and off for over a year. As I look at this piece, if feels representational of a rainy day at the beach. It began as something completely different and ended up an urban collage. The colors are shades of denim. I used moulding paste to cover the canvas and create a concrete like texture. I then added jute twine for a linear, horizontal component. Very minute hints of gold, red oxide and turquoise exist in the crevises around the twine. This piece would be at home in an urban loft, beach house or a suburban home with great style. The piece is signed on the back, and a certificate of authenticity will accompany it. The sides were left in their natural state which ended up being a gold undercoat with washes of transparent blue that give it an organic feel. I was unable to get a completely accurate representation with a photo. The colors of this piece are slightly less vibrant, more like denim in color. I will add additional photos in the comments area below the posting, or feel free to email me for more photos at email@example.com
I grew up in the San Juan islands of Washington State. Surrounded by a rich art culture, I developed a love for painting. Both self taught and informally educated, I primarily work in acrylic but from time to time you might find a watercolor or mixed medium piece. My works are not currently shown in a brick and mortar gallery, I have preferred to sell pieces through referral. When I discovered the Vango platform, I was thrilled. It seems to be a perfect venue to share my pieces with those looking for an original piece of art to bejewell their home or office. Artworks are like flowers, we should surround ourselves with them as they bring us joy. Bright and abstract makes me the happiest, so I hope that you will find a piece that can bring a smile to your face each time you pass it by. My art now hangs in private collections all over the US in cities such as New York, LA, Washington DC, Boston, Austin, Denver and San Juan Puerto Rico.
