A peek behind the scenes of “Regatta”June 2021
People are surprised to learn that I prepare my canvases by painting them cadmium red. The color adds vibrancy and depth to the finished art. It is the foundation of my paintings.
For Regatta, I wanted to express the proud, gutsy and confident mood of this powerful color. On top of the red, I painted layers of brown-red, yellow, orange, and layers and layers of red.
To enhance the strength of the canvas, I painted solid, angular shapes across the red expanse. They gave the work an energy and motion that reminds me of a regatta.
People bring their own visions to an abstract work of art. I welcome all interpretations! Even if one’s vision does not align with mine. My main intention is to inspire feeling …
… with imagination and color,
