Ready to Hang
This painting is a contemporary stylized scene of the beach at Tulum, Mexico, where the water is the most beautiful blue color. It is a 36" x 24" acrylic painting on canvas, based on my own photo of this magical place. This painting took several years to finish painting because the spirit of this ancient Mayan fortress is hard to capture. This is my second interpretation of it. The painting is framed in a bamboo frame, ready for hanging.
Long ago in a galaxy not very far away, I was a talented child drawer. That morphed into a love of painting that I have had most of my life. 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.
