Oblik Series

The Oblik series began at the end 2007. I decided to make a group of large canvas pieces and sat down to work. Nothing was going well and I furiously tried to erase some persimmon colored paint with my brush. I thought if I could wipe away most of paint, I would later cover over it. The result was an astonishing discovery of a new technique I have now explored and improved upon over the last 2 ½ years. The painting I created that day became Oblik 2, 2008. The title comes from a Macedonian word my husband used to describe the shapes in my composition.

  1. I like the playful use of color and space = particularly in 10 where you hold the magenta back in space despite the fact it longs to come forward. Everything has a soft, but almost joyful tension. I suppose I should read your statement …

    my paintings are not yet up on my wordpresss site … working on another site for that and may take some time.

  2. great space! love the sensuality of these pieces – makes me want to dive into (12), lie on (1), smell (4), wear (15), hear (3), hang on my wall (7). keep up the good work!
