My paintings are inspired by what I see around me, but mostly what I feel. This piece is meant to offer a feeling of serenity, such as might be felt in Heaven. The painting is created using brushes, painting knives, squeegees and various other tools.
The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.
Julie Weaverling’s abstract paintings are organic yet deliberate. She approaches her work with a well-developed idea, then begins applying paint. Julie experiments with transparent and opaque layers that metaphorically represent the human condition. She focuses on the idea of compartmentalizing: humans separate their work from their secrets, their friends from their traumas, creating many layers to the self. “What is hidden is sometimes more revealing than what is seen,” Julie says. Through the scraping and layering of color, the artist asks the viewer to consider what lies underneath.
