Ready to Hang
I have always kept scraps of paper with paint on them- you never know when you might need them! For this piece, I painted several large strips of paper with many layers of paint each. I then cut them into thin strips and adhered them carefully to a Birch Panel. In the end I added gold leaf and some paint accents to bring it all together. This is one of my favorite pieces and I think on of the best that I have created. The photo cannot do justice to the gorgeous variation in color and texture that the paint and gold leaf bring to the piece. Bright and Cheerful yet very modern and sophisticated. I anticipate more of these in the future, perhaps larger in scale.
I have finished the work with a coat of Gloss Varnish for protection. The sides are painted a dark charcoal grey- nearly black but a bit softer. A certificate of authenticity will accompany the artwork.
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.
