Just completed this coffee cup painting for the fall exhibition & sale in Carp. I'm hoping to get one of our local potters to make a couple cups to match so that we can team up on an interesting group sale. I'll set them up in my painting booth on a cafe table with a tablecloth to match the painting. It should make a fun art display.
I love to experiment with various media and imagery, mostly in an creative abstract fashion with bold forms, patterns and colour, painting whatever inspires me at the moment. I incorporate fabric, beads, buttons, found objects, wire and many objects from nature into mostly acrylic paintings. I paint until I believe I am completely finished, then I step back, return to the canvas and paint some more. Using elements that lend the correct colour and texture to my non-objected abstract pieces, I get results that excite my eye and make me feel good. After a few days I make up my mind if the work should be signed or turned to the left and worked some more. When enough is enough, I sign it and hang it.
If you see a painting in my blog that I have not listed on Etsy, contact me, tell me the title of the painting and I will list it ASAP to allow you a safe an easy way to purchase. Etsy offers you a safe purchasing environment.
Just REMEMBER to let me know your email address so that I can send you the direct link to the painting you have selected.
