Sit, Please

January 20, 2011

I'm not sure why I'm so drawn to portraiture in art. Maybe it's all of the questions that it brings to mind. Where were they? Who were they? Did they sit for it or was it painted from a photograph? Were they created in the artist's mind? We all have a story. What was theirs? I don't, however, particularly care for stuffy or realistic portraits. I like them more original, sometimes even abstract. Here you will find an array, some of which are in my own collection and a couple that I covet.

Just Like 1985

Not really, but I'm loving all of these vibrant colors. Color plays a big role in my work and my life. It's probably the one thing that people comment on most when referring to my work. Like anyone I have my favorites, purple and turquoise to be specific, but I love the entire spectrum. Color mixing comes naturally for me, but I also don't think there is any wrong color. It's really how you play them off of one another. I recently designed an instant room for an upcoming issue of House Beautiful and used yellow, hot pink, dark blue and shades of purple. Now it seems that everywhere I look I am gravitating to these bold and vibrant colors. I love all things retro and right now these colors are making me love the 80's.
