I created this piece when I was exploring pointillism, an impressionist style of creating an image by overlying small spots of color. I gradually built up the image with white, parchment, gray, pale green, violet, and many shades of blue.
My inspiration in creating this piece is music--the way notes combine to form something greater than each individual note. The colors in this painting combine in a similar way to create a melody of life.
I painted using acrylic directly from the tube, working while the paint was still wet so that the colors would blend on the edges, yet retain their distinct hue.
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.
