Ready to Hang
I created this painting at a time when I was experimenting with pointillism. It's a method of building up an image using small dots of color. I began with a pale background and then began building up the image with spots of overlapping colors. This image is of two dancing “X” figures. “X” is a mark I love to make, and in this painting two of them are happily dancing together.
This is an original painting on stretched canvas, with the image continuing around the 1.5" sides so that no frame is required. It comes ready to hang.
Lynne Taetzsch’s abstract paintings are hanging in private homes and corporate offices throughout the world. She has been in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in New York, California, Florida, and elsewhere in the USA. She studied fine art at Cooper Union, the University of California, and the University of Southern California. Describing her painting process, Lynne says: It’s the painting surface that I love - the lusciousness of color in its thick and thin varieties, flat and opaque to keep the eye on the surface, or transparent and airy to suggest deep space. My goal is to stay as close to the edge as possible, to keep that sense of organic happening, as if the painting had grown itself rather than having been crafted by me. Yet it is the artist's eye that seeks to prevail, telling the hand to add that last brush stroke which brings it all together.
