Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this piece is the open expansiveness I feel in it, as well as the warmth of the reds. This painting has heart. My inspiration in creating this piece was a feeling of joy and delight in life—the sun, the air, the earth. I added water to thin the background colors, which gives it a sense of lightness. Although this is an acrylic painting, it has some sensibilities of a water color. This is a matted and framed original acrylic painting on archival watercolor paper. The framed size is 28" x 22" and the image size is 23.5" x 17.5". The frame is black aluminum
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.
