Plant a seed. Plant a seed in the mind of a young child. Each child and each idea is unique. Will the seed grow into something great? This piece is textural and sculptural. It began with molding medium on a canvas I created the "seeds" and then painted each one with gold paint. each seed has several layers of color to make them unique. the gold under painting both frames the seed and gives it a somewhat luminescent appearance.. Shades of Red, Turquoise, grey, blue, white, and orange are layered. Background is a neutral tone, slightly grey. The imperfect nature of the work is intentional and adds to its interest. A certificate of Authenticity will accompany the painting. It has been given an archival satin varnish to protect it. it is signed on the front and back
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.
