When I was young, I spent most of my time outside, though oddly enough, I really wasn't very fond of getting dirty. This painting reminds me of youth when I'd go to great pains to keep my favorite dress clean while I played outside barefooted in it.
This 16 x 20 oil painting is in a folk art style. The red dress and turquoise really shine against the dark background.
Creativity broadens our horizons and gives us an opportunity to really get to know ourselves. I love to be creative! I've spent many years painting wall art, floor art, miniature art and sculpture. I'm particularly drawn to organic forms and materials and abstract styles. I love the bold use of color and experimenting with many different mediums and techniques. I've sold many pieces through the years in local retail shops as well as through online venues. My real name is Lori Wainwright but I have always used the moniker “Merry Seeker” for my creative endeavors. I am happiest when I am creating and always seek to express that happiness through my creativity, thus I am “Merry Seeker”.
