Welcome!! Here is a little about me and I hope you will share about you so we get to know each other!
My work is abstract acrylic, done with texture and symbols with meaning. I often paint with acrylic that has a great deal of metal in it, and I use patinas for color and texture. I prefer to paint on wood , but use canvas as well. My work has fine line work on the sides, edges, and even in the interior of the painting. I uses symbols from folktales, other countries, Native American tribes, and some symbols I make up to tell stories in my work. You will find much texture in my work in addition to my symbols, patines and beautiful colors. Because I was born in and have lived most of my life in Arizona, my work has the flavor of the Southwest in color and style. My husbnad and I are in the process of moving to Arlington, VA to be near my daughter, and no doubt I will pick up some Southeastern flavor soon. This year, you will find me in the Arlington Studio Tour 9/28-29, and Hidden in the Hills, Scottsdale and Carefree, AZ the weekend before and after Thanksgiving. In the spring, I can be found in the Arizona Fine Art Expo from January 11 until the end of March.
That said, I want to tell you what a pleasure it is to work with you, I and hope we get well acquainted Please feel free to send me comments and questions. I am here for you to get the most out of the class that you possiblly can, and to have FUN with paint and color. Pat
