My husband "commissioned" me to paint two large works for our entry wall. This is the study for the left diptych panel. Right panel is here. Overall, Jim wants something colorful and dramatic that pops out at you when you walk in the door. So nice he wants my artwork front and center. :-) Soon I will enlarge each panel to 4'x3.' BIG!

I am loving this world of abstracts and exploring new avenues and techniques. Here, I was trying to convey a flurry of activity. Can you feel the movement of the bubbles floating up in sea of color, like schools of exotic fish?

The Dance 30"x24"
Oil on gallery-wrapped canvas

After I painted "Summit" in a 7x5" format, I decided it was a perfect study for a larger work. So I created this 30x24" piece. It has a good bit of influence from the study, yet it seemed to take on a bit more of an entangled dance rhythm of two entities or figures rather than appearing as a single figure reaching a summit. Thus the new name. Hope you enjoy. This is one of my favorite color combinations. Available in my home studio for viewing. I am also happy to send additional photos.

Summit  7"x5"
Oil on canvas board

I love to create abstracts out of the cool, sophisticated colors I discover at the end of a day of painting. This is one of those wonderful combinations of colors and shapes that seems to create itself. Love these colors!!!!!
