I don’t perceive myself as a realist by any means. Perhaps I moved into realism rather than from it. Currently, I am working on a body of paintings of anchorages along the Chesapeake Bay’s Eastern Shore where my husband and I spend our summers on our sailboat. A pervading sense of power accompanies the abstractions and tugs at my memory of our modern environment. Most of the views are flat landscapes and shallow waters, hence my large sweeping skies. Many paintings are completed from smaller pleine air studies. Being rebellious by nature I am not known for coloring within the lines. I work with layers of acrylic applied with my hands, rags, and yes, sometimes brushes.
Most paintings are 36″x 36″ acrylic on birch clay board/ gesso board.
