You know those joyful moments of peace when you reach a hilltop view, turn around to see a sunset behind you, or admire a fresh bouquet? It takes you away from the hustle and bustle... the negativity of bumping up against each other in daily life. Using simple dots, I like to capture and share these joyful moments of being.
Using small paintbrushes and liquid acrylics, I paint 5-7 layers of dots to create landscapes and florals. Sometimes the paintings will incorporate different colored canvases, a change in surfaces, imagined colors, or even alternate vantage points. These paintings stop people from a distance and often tease viewers into coming in close to see all of the lush, interconnected layers. Many are drawn in so intensely to the joy and textures of the paintings that they often have to fight the urge to touch them.
