During this month of breast cancer awareness I have been working with pink which is not one of my usual colors. Pink can be a really strong color; another reason for it to be the color for awareness of breast cancer.
Here is another work done with a mark-making gesture. After painting in some areas of color I made a sweeping mark over the painting then scratched through to some of the color underneath. Great freedom is felt in this kind of work.
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.
