Ready to Hang
This is a very mysterious piece blending my favorite cool colors with feathery strokes in an effort to achieve balance and harmony. Lots of texture and a glossy surface are added to the mix in this painting that is part of the Clouds series. It is deeper than the others, with 1.5 inch gallery-wrapped painted edges. Also ready to hang, no frame required!
The title was chosen because the puffiness reminds me of clouds and if you let your imagination go free you can picture these aqua clouds flying by.
Passionate about color, inspired by natural light, I rely heavily on instinct to bring my paintings to fruition. I have exhibited widely in the New York Metropolitan area as well as nationally and my work has been published internationally and is in many private collections. My portfolio and full bio are visible on my website robertaaviram.com. I am a recipient of many awards and a member of the National Association of Women Artists as well as other local art groups. Holding a BA in Fine Art and an MA in Fine Art and Art Education, I teach privately at present in addition to working in my studio. I believe that my art expresses my intuitive love for pure color. I try to incorporate light and vitality into my work but my main theme is the interplay of cool and warm colors. Painting realistically has always been my signature but I have recently become involved in abstraction and I am loving it as well. I alternate between the two styles frequently so that I can keep the work fresh and inspired. My foundation is in watercolor but presently I paint primarily in oils and acrylics. My realistic oils are painted on premium Belgian linen which I stretch and frame myself. I try to keep the colors pure by keeping my brushes clean after each stroke. Sometimes it's a very time consuming process but totally necessary to get the effect I am searching for. My abstracts are more spontaneous and emotional as I try to look for "happy accidents" that can create magic through color relationships. The abstracts here are from my Blue Clouds Series.
