Counting Myself Lucky

950.00

This is an original painting, 24" x 24" acrylic and fabric on panel.

This piece with its bright turquoises and reds will attract the eye in whatever room you hang it. "Counting Myself Lucky" was about feeling fortunate to be able to work in my small but delightful studio - it's really a painting about the joy of painting.

The Attraction series

My painting practice is fundamentally an exploration of surface through pattern, color, and texture. I have a magpie-like attraction to bright, colorful, decorated objects, but an orderly mind, a love for the grid and a strong schooling (from my architectural design studies) to mistrust the superficial. These contradictory urges come together in my paintings. I work in many layers of acrylic media, starting with a repeating fabric design at the base and adding elements both rigid and planned (geometric stencil repeats) and loose and unplanned (drips, washes, crackled layers). Abstracted floral forms and decorative elements make an appearance, like dreams of old-fashioned textiles. With these paintings, I celebrate the surface.
