URBAN GRID is the natural progression of my original GRID series. These pieces are extremely textural. They are bright and modern yet gritty and elegant. A colorful underpainting is then washed in gold giving a glow to the painting. Many layers of color are given a patina by layers of sepia ink. Gold outlines the squares. The sides are painted slightly translucent gold over the colorful underpainting adding interest while giving a finished look. The painting 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.
