Ready to Hang
TRIPTYCH IN BLUE began as my current works have, with bold strokes of color on canvas that are muted with a thin veil of gesso followed by a layer of gold. I then scratch and sand a bit to expose the underlying color. Upcycled papers and crushed eggshell were added for texture. Layers of blues, blacks, and turquoise are applied. Some are left and some are rubbed off for shading and interest. Finally, I apply shapes and lines that are torn from hand painted paper. The pieces have been given a final coat of satin varnish for protection and signed on the back. They may be hung in any order or direction to fit your space and interpretation of the pieces.
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.
