From Circles: The Shape of Life

Three abstracts: winners!

 

Three abstracts are winners. I am honored that three of my abstracts were selected for Still Point Art Gallery’s Rectangles, Triangles, Circles: The Shape of Life. This online exhibition is up from August 1-October 31, 2015.  It is also featured in the Still Point Arts Quarterly  (Fall 2015).

Inspiration

These paintings are all based on a doodle that I began making during lengthy conference calls with wonderful people who had gathered to help a dear friend and dedicated public servant network her way into a different job. We were ultimately unsuccessful (but in great support of the person who was selected). Our friend continues her public service (lucky people in her district), and I got an inspirational and winning design.  Every tiny block is connected to one or more blocks. Just like people in the world — connected. These watercolor paintings are all made with tiny brushes (double and triple zero), and Micron Pens. I am becoming very fond of the pen size .005 which has a .20 mm tip.
