"Adrift" can be interpreted in many different ways.  Adrift in one’s thoughts, adrift in space, adrift on country roads, adrift on the ocean. I created this painting with pours of saturated and transparent acrylic paints on canvas to achieve a layered depth.  Blues and grays blend to create pools of light and shadow.

Getting to Know Dorothy

From childhood on, Dorothy was always eager about painting. Her grandfather encouraged her to graduate from a finger-painting enthusiast to a more mature and serious artist. Dorothy’s approach to her abstract artwork entails pouring paint in transparent layers to create sweeping colors across the canvas. Regardless, she manages to stay true to her childhood roots: “To this day, my clothes and hands always reflect the colors I am working with,” says Dorothy. “And I once again rediscovered the joys of finger-painting with my children!”
