Ready to Hang
This is an abstract painting based on science. It's acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas, and basically a beautiful abstract in many colors: Greens, purples and blues with a dash of gold. I have been interested in science all my life. This piece is inspired by climate change, and came about as I wondered if our atmosphere is headed towards something like Venus. If you want to ignore the science of this painting, it's a beautiful, highly textured abstract with lots of movement and energy. This painting is gallery wrapped with painted edges, reading for hanging, but not framed.
Long ago in a galaxy far away, I was a talented child drawer, and that morphed into a love of painting. I received a degree in illustration while in high school. Later I studied fine arts painting at a university and have been painting ever since. I paint mostly in acrylic and watercolors. I do portraits, landscapes, and abstracts, and occasional series like wildlife on abstract backgrounds. I'm very interested in environmental causes and often do paintings about those themes. I am now doing an ongoing abstract series based on astronomy, a long-time love of mine. I am originally from Minnesota. I have also lived in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, North Dakota, and northern Minnesota. I don't really love to move, but I love to travel, especially to central America. Sometimes I interpret my travel photos later as paintings. I now live in the Atlanta Georgia area with my husband and cute dog. My studio is in my home so I can paint at 3:00 am if I want to, and yes, that happens. I'm a night owl painter, because for me, that's when the magic happens.
