This painting was inspired by a photograph I took while on an amazing trip with family and friends. This piece holds a special place in my heart and the juxtaposition between light and dark, happy and sad, heavy and light, make me view it differently every time I look at it. The colors of this painting are shades of muted purplish/grey. This is not black and white. The firework also has the slightest hint of pinks and yellows to help demonstrate the sparkle of a firework.Depending on the lighting of the room, this painting can appear darker than this photo shows.
Staci works from her much loved home studio in the beautiful historic city of Saint Augustine. Although creating artwork is not currently her full time job, it is most certainly her full time passion. Being the daughter of an extremely talented artist mother, she was exposed to art and the creative process early on. Throughout her youth Staci expressed her creativity mainly through prose and photography, and more recently has expanded to jewelry making and painting. Her paintings often are inspired by the natural world around her but extend at times into the fanciful. She ranges from studies in monochromatic works to those which are filled with bright, bold colors. Her main mediums are acrylic and mixed media. Staci currently lives with her dog named Kat whose name further reflects her quirky playful spirit.
