In Pieces

In Pieces

Released in 2019, the graphic black and white was actually inspired by an atrium shot I took in Brussels. I never know which things will give way to new works, sometimes it's a glimpse of something in that moment. The photo is more of a bookmark to remind me of an idea, not intended to actually paint a specific image.

In this case I used the metal and reflection mood. I also used the same concept in Apertures, having more of a hint of a building.

The Story of St. Paul...

The Story of St. Paul...

The original painting "St. Paul" is a nod to a rainy day, the Paris streets,  and my husband. His middle name is Paul, he's admittedly no Saint... but he is certainly loved and a huge part of my inspiration.  I took a shot from my iPhone, nothing great just a quick shot of him walking in the rain with the Eiffel Tower as our backdrop. That image can be seen in the final canvas work. My goal was to have a hint of "St. Paul", a hint of the Eiffel Tower, a "Where's Waldo"effect.  

The canvas reproduction and mixed media option is also currently available through Neiman Marcus.

Escalante

Escalante is inspired by the high desert canyons. The naming process is sometimes as time consuming as painting...I wanted the name to reflect the canyon terrain, layers of sediment, movement, a sense of colliding with the natural elements. The original work is acrylic on board.

Sublime

Sublime is a moody work inspired by a lot of requests for a larger and similar option to Innuendo No. 4. Sublime has more contrast with the deeper smokey gray layers. I personally prefer the vertical version in an ebony frame. Sublime made its debut on HGTV's Celebrity I.O.U. installed for Michael Bublé. The canvas was rotated.

The Story of Apertures...

I have pressing deadlines at every corner I turn,  but somehow I do not seem to be able to adjust my habits to comfortably meet those calendar deadlines. The deadlines are not new...they don't sneak up on me or anything. I just don't look at clocks...or the days of the week for that matter. It all blends together, rolling into the next. 

Some people will say I just need the pressure in order to produce. There is truth in that, but I also think it is a weird, maybe creative-induced glitch.  Either way, my purpose in writing about this glitch is to relay how new concepts emerge...usually in those late nights,  under extreme pressure. 

I have been playing with layering of my work within my work. The concept is using my original paintings, printing, painting on that print, printing again, adding a section of another painting, printing, painting...you get the idea.

Apertures is the 2nd work released under this creative formula. If you look closely you may find the relationship between Apertures and In Pieces.
