When the ocean is calm and flat reflections of the sun and clouds intermixed with the dark greens and blues of the deep waters make it appear to almost be a field one could walk into. It was with this in mind that I layered blues and greens to blend and play with each other in pools of light and shadow.

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!”
