Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this piece was because it is something my surfing obsessed husband says and I thought it was pretty rad with a little bit of humor ;)
This piece had many other versions before it became this soulful & colorful surf shot. There are a lot of layers of paint underneath. As I've been exploring the softer palette and landscapes, some of my paintings just keep evolving as I explore. It is softer but still colorful.
My inspiration in creating this piece was provided by one of my former co-workers that I worked with at Quiksilver who posted a beautiful photo on Facebook, and this is my abstract translation in acrylic paint.
Maxine creates textured abstract surrealist mixed media works of art that carry the viewer to a place of memory or imagination. Inspired by her Florida Gulf Coast beach life, the vibrant colors and nature that surrounds this area that she is happy to call home. With a background in graphic design, she is grateful for the multifaceted opportunities that she's had as an artist.
