This painting is part of a series of paintings using acrylic, sand and paper. The texture provides softer edges and allows the color layers to show through.
My paintings create a sense of energy and spirit that emanates from the layering of color, texture, the composition and the mark-making. I am most interested in using juxtapositions of color and exploring how layers affect layers. Many of my paintings have a tactile three-dimensional presence due to the build up of textured surfaces on the canvas or on paper.
I use a variety of materials depending of the effect I am trying to achieve and I am always experimenting. My paintings are meant to be meditative, either peripherally or with a focused attention.
