03 Mar “Intoxicating Color” by Diana Sartor
Show runs May 6 – June 20
Color is one key element in any painting. It is dominant in mine. My mixed media paintings are filled with lush color: reds, magentas, juicy oranges, rich cobalt blues! The anticipation of sensuous color mixing and mingling on paper is reason enough for me to begin painting. Organic or abstract, my paintings begin intuitively using artists links poured on water saturated paper. Watching the bloom of color and the flow as pigment finds its own way around the surface is a delicious starting point. Selected hand-painted paper and acrylics complete the puzzle of harmonious design and a finished painting.
