Using photographs, journal writings and sense memories, I strove to capture an impactful time in my twenties when I lived in Los Angeles, California. In many ways, the West Coast has a strikingly different ambience than the East Coast landscape in which I was raised. In the piece, I incorporated these contrasts and notations, as well as the novelty and exhilaration of living on one’s own. I strove to express the array of emotions and experiences during my LA period. Through the use of several layers of acrylic paint, I sought to find patterns, discover the unexpected and to meld textures and colors. I created tension through the interplay of hues, values, chroma and differing paint textures. I repeatedly experimented to arrive at this finished piece, “LA Nights.”
36 x 36 original acrylic painting on linen. The painting comes professionally wired and ready for hanging. This is 1 inch thick on sides and does not need a frame. If your location is within the Tristate area (NY, NJ, CT) I will deliver. Otherwise, I ship via USPS priority mail. (price of shipping not included)
