Collection Preview: Valentines Figures
Inspired by the fresh start of a new year, I explored a looser and more energetic approach to this series.
When trialing new techniques, I always find it useful to use a tried and true subject - in this case, the female figure. She never fails to offer the challenge of capturing expression, light values, volume and weight.
Like many of my pieces, my use of color & marks are inspired by the land around me. Even when my subjects aren’t directly reflecting the Great Lakes region, I still find myself endlessly inspired by Her - by nature.
Suggested by their names, these female figures personify the many sides of Her - particularly in this season of Winter. I had so much fun naming them - some are cheeky, flirtatious, and bold, others are nostalgic, hopeful, and serene.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
All paintings are framed in a neutral maple wood floater frame. They will be ready to hang, but the frames are deep enough to sit on a shelf (on your dresser next to your jewelry is particularly chic in my opinion!) I love how the clean cut edges & minimalist frames set some boundaries for my energetic marks and washes.
8x8’s are $165 and 8x10’s are $195 + shipping & handling.
Keep scrolling to the bottom to see how I suggest styling or pairing them!
