This month is an exciting time for me as I get ready for the Fall Festival of Arts
in Deland, November 20-21, 2021. I will be in booth 138 so if you can, stop by and say hello!
Mountain Muse is my latest painting and it will be exhibiting at the Fall Festival of Arts.
This diptych (two paintings as one) is based on many trips to the
Blue Ridge/Appalachian mountains.
As a child, I remember driving into the mountains and seeing so many little mountain
cottage stores with lovely handmade quilts hanging for sale on the porches.
As an adult, I have a few friends who quilt and somehow those two influences ended up
in my painting giving it both a modern cubist and quilt like feel.
I used fabric, and impasto to create a feeling of reconstruction or putting the pieces together in a new way.
I could not capture the thick layers in the work with a camera so come see it in person.
In other news, my husband has completed this lovely shadow box frame for
Ocean Dreaming II. I am excited to display this painting at the festival also.
And last and least in size, these 12 x 12 floral paintings are three out of four I created to have some small paintings available. The one in the middle FLOWER POWER sold on my new
online shop and is getting ready for shipping to it's new home in Cocoa Beach!
