This one is going to Columbus, Georgia for the show "Let There be Art" happening in April. Changed my mind...I'll be keeping this. NFS
I was painting yesterday in my studio, aka-my back porch, my appendages were so cold, I actually started shaking at one point! I have, as of late built up many unfinished works...basically because of a couple of health issues, which I am so relieved to say I dodged a bullet! Still managing one...but age is not reversible.
My point. Being so cold makes you paint without over thinking. Hence, my "different" painting.
I painted this during a workshop with Ian Roberts last November in Kiawah. After a few weeks of "breathing it in" I added more paint over the shapes. A view from one of the golf holes on The River Course. "Do you know what fore means?!"
I'm giving this one up and sending it to The Columbus Museum for the April 2014 "Let There be Art" Show. SOLD
I moved to Charleston 20 years ago. With no previous training I decided to try painting. Acrylics first, easy clean up, then switched to oils, more freedom. I am inspired by the natural world around me. I love colors and shapes that I see outside, I try to make them come alive on my canvas. The sense of movement in my art is influenced by music, it is an essential element. Moving while I paint keeps the energy flowing. I use a palette knife to carve lines and shapes to construct a canvas full of movement. I love to build up layers of paint so just a sliver of the original peaks through. The blueprint of the landscape is secondary to the placement of the blocks of color. I am a member of the Charleston Artist Collective, a web-based business. I also show my work at Atrium Gallery in Charleston, SC. I paint in my home studio in the Old Village of Mount Pleasant, SC. I started painting to fill my walls...now I am an "artist in progress"
