I am feeling like summer is almost here, if not already here; hot weather and crowds at the beach have me thinking of summer. Light, bright colors mean summer to me. This is a small 8x8 inch acrylic on paper.
The new book by Sue St.John is out! "A Walk Into Abstracts" is available online at www.awalkintoabstracts6.com. I am so pleased to be included in this book, and several of my online artist friends are also. The book has lots of pictures of artwork and explanations of how the work was done; each artist has written about his/her process.
This painting "Following Dreams" just got into the juried show at Spoleto in Charleston. I am thrilled to be included.
This past weekend I received the pre-publish copy of Sue St. John's new book
"Walking Into Abstracts". I was fortunate to be able to have two paintings in the book and explanations of my process. The book is a wonderful collection of abstract artists, their work, and their process. There are several of my online artist friends in the book, and I am especially glad to read about their process. I can't wait to see it in the published version and have time to really read it. Thanks to Sue!
I have been painting for many years in several different media and have won awards in juried shows and had one-woman and small group shows. The learning aspect of painting has been a great joy and driving force for me. For the past few years I have become interested in abstract work and have been studying how to understand abstract work and how to do it.
