Ready to Hang
Grabbing a blank canvas I headed outside to enjoy the sun and summer air . With no intent of a subject, I noticed the beautiful shadow the lattice surrounding the deck cast. Placing the canvas down to catch it, I used it as a template and "Logical" was born. Acrylic paint on 18"x24" stretched canvas, sides painted, it's ready to hang or can be framed. Certificate of authenticity included.
May this positive art which God has blessed me with bring beauty, distraction, joy, and an uplifted spirit to those who see that through color and shapes tied together, the art speaks to us individually.
My name is Mary Sperling. I grew up in a household where my mother did oil paintings and when I expressed interest, she provided me with canvas and paints. I am self-taught and as a child, looked up to my uncle who is also an artist. Enduring an illness like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia for more than a decade is rough but there are also some good things I'm not sure I would have experienced otherwise. Maybe for me it took a weakened body to experience the heightened intensity I now do by certain colors, shapes, and sounds. I love color and the way it makes me feel. A few years ago, I remember certain colors coming alive to me. They drew my attention and gave me pleasure to look at. I started experimenting with them. As of late, I've started a new type of art using mixed media. I haven't seen this art style anywhere else and just enjoy expressing myself with bright color and contrasting dark lines.
