11" by 14" acrylic mixed media on canvas. For sale on  SOLD

I'm shifting my viewpoint a bit, wanting to look from above instead of the side lately. One of my favorite books on Bonnard by Julian Bell, was inspiration for this one. In writing about "The Red Checkered Tablecloth, he says the grids of the tablecloth Bonnard uses "often recedes in perspective to make a slight but interesting tension with the picture's flatness."

your paintings have such beautiful patterns and brushstrokes. Do you use photographs or actual set ups for inspiration?

Thanks Marcia! I use actual set ups and paint directly from life most the time. I do have a series of larger, more abstract work in which I use photographs of weeds and plants to do drawings from. I like how you incorporate actual photographs in your work.
