I like colorful art that engages the imagination, attracts attention, and leaves room for interpretation.

I am drawn to weathered objects and peeling paint with my photography. The layers of texture and vibrancy of color appropriately earned this piece the title of “Rustic Dreams”.

Color, texture, and layers of unpredictability is what working in oil and cold wax produces.  There is mystery in this process and the resulting work, like this abstracted coral reef.

My mixed media acrylic paintings are about exploring the relationships of textures, colors, lines and shapes in the world around us in an abstract way.

Whatever mediums are necessary to express my feelings are used on my paintings – acrylics, gesso, inks, pastels. I use lots of texture for effect, but a limited palette with strong values to convey the mood and illustrate my idea and my emotions. I want people to feel what I am saying.

The colors I select can be vibrant or subdued; it depends on the mood I’m in during the process of painting. Color is a vehicle for non-verbal communication.

Love of color is what led me to first pick up a paintbrush. I paint intuitively, fearlessly and always joyfully exploring new color combinations inspired by nature, city reflections and, my imagination.

I like my color loud and proud. Nothing expresses emotion like bright, raw, visceral, color. It fuels my process. Color is the thing that keeps me painting day after day.

My mixed media piece, “Afro-Abstraction No 4” is an explosion of color. I used various patterns and different mediums to create a vibrant, colorful piece of art.

Color is emotive whether it be a figure or landscape… Color is energy, and I paint how I feel when viewing my subject. I like unique color arrangements one may not use.

Color is my muse. When I create, I paint what inspires me, so that my paintings may inspire others.

My artwork integrates rich layers of paint in vivid and elegant color palettes to create dramatic compositions that captivate the eye and evoke a sense of adventure.

Through abundant layers and textures, my emotions corporealize themselves onto canvas creating a psychedelic kaleidoscope of colors and dream-like abstract forms.

I am seeking to capture the feeling not just of a place, but of a moment. I use color to create a sense of the mystery and atmosphere in wild places.

 

Cobalt Meteor Earrings by Tawny Reynolds of Sundrop Jewelry

I love the vibrant, sparkling colors of translucent glass glowing in the light.  I use recycled bottles and stained glass, all melted with sunshine and a giant magnifying glass, to create elegant, eye-catching art jewelry.

The use of color is the base for all my paintings. The challenge is finding the perfect balance of light and dark, subtle and saturated.

I was inspired by some Dutch magazines with flowers, and my recent trip to the Netherlands where I visited the Mauritshuis in the Hague, a museum filled with art from 1600’s  and 1700’s.

My work is inspired by ability to create oneself once again by salvaging all of the good from experiences, and creating something new.

I want to capture Light and lock it inside my work. My canvases are neat, no evident brush strokes; the paint is applied smoothly, layers upon layers.

Growing up in vibrant South Africa I have always loved rich bold colours, florals, patterns and nature. Combine it all, and my magic is created!
