My intention with this piece was to use the small shapes and patterns from the smaller floral paintings that solicited a great reaction from a gallery in San Francisco and use them in a larger painting, (as per their suggestion). As the patterns evolved, the shapes emerged. I created the flow and movement by layering the vines, whips and spirals and created the shallow depth of a forest floor by building the lights and darks.
I have been working on marketing myself as well, not something that comes easily to me, and even put together an Exhibition Proposal for a couple of solo shows, one in New York City and the other at Marin MOCA in California. It is very time consuming and I am finding that it really cuts down on my painting time but I am learning and it should get easier and better too with practice.
Love your paintings! When you get your solo show in NY I promise I’ll be there!!
Great to hear from you! Are you still in London or back in Westport? Hope all is well and thanks for your kind words, they really mean a lot to me!
I love your painting – beautiful. Good luck with having a show.
