"I am always seeking wisdom, when to lay down my arms, when to stay the fight, when to release my fear and when to say goodnight. I am always seeking wisdom, to know my strengths, and to close the gap that encircles my weaknesses. I am always seeking wisdom in the truth of my heart, and to know the depths of my soul will always show me the way." In 2017, Denver-based fine artist, Laurie Maves, continues to create mixed media works on gessoed paper with inspirational messages, thoughts and ideas. They are meant to be your most favorite greeting card on steroids, a beautiful way to convey messages in small art forms. Laurie gessoes watercolor paper then uses a variety of materials, from acrylics, to water colors, charcoal pencils, oil pastels, colored pencils and paint pens to create imagery and phrasing which either come from popular music lyrics as well as her own thoughts and streams of consciousness. The artist often shares her process on Instagram @LaurieMavesArt via live video feeds, as well as video and stills captured and recorded in her studio. For mixed media works on paper, check out her Day of the Dead Series as well as her widely popular "You are my Number 8" series. For those art collectors interested in larger works, check out Laurie's circular abstract paintings on canvas. Her latest series of circular abstracts are based on the conceptualization of healthy cells and the oneness of humanity. Simply called the Circle Paintings, this series in particular has been created to inspire others to love and to health. They are meant to be meditative in nature, organic reminders of perfect wholeness in the universe. The shape is an ancient symbol and can be seen in every culture, in every person, in every life that comes full circle. She hopes that her audience finds these paintings as promoting positive energy, relationships and peace.
