Always drawn to shape, texture and color, the URBAN GRID series is the newest progression of my original GRID series. It is deep, highly textured, vibrant, elegant, and gritty all at once. multiple layers of acrylic paint are enhanced and given patina with sepia ink washes. The works have a gold underpainting and some highlighting that adds radiance to the pieces. the edges have been finished with a coat of gold paint that allows a bit of the underpainting and process show itself. The areas that show themselves as a creamy color in the photo are in fact gold. I unfortunately could not get it to come out against the color in the photo. You may want to see URBAN GRID II for another example of the color as the pieces were created in tandem and are very similar.
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.
