I was feeling blue the day I made this painting. I wanted to express the tumultuous feelings with the strong shapes and deep colors. I named this piece Midnight Sail because the painting reminded me of a boat sailing through rough waters.
Hello my name is Rosemary Estrella, I work as a project architect in NYC. I have always loved to draw, paint, and have a creative outlet. As a child I spent hours drawing pictures or coloring in my coloring book; I always knew that I wanted to be an artist. I choose to study Architecture because I thought it would allow me to be creative while still working in practical way. However, I found myself not being as creative as I would have liked so I decided to return to my first loves painting and drawing. At first, I thought it wouldn't be the same but when you love something, it never leaves you. I am inspired by nature and architectural elements; I like to use my ability to combine different shapes to produce interesting abstract compositions for my pieces. I produce mixed media work, acrylic work on canvas, as well as digital paintings. I have commissioned pieces in NY and Philadelphia for residential and commercial spaces.
