Stormy skies and crashing water often intermix, creating a splendid show of brilliant whites, dark grays, and crystalline blues that are highlighted with lingering splashes of sunlight. Dorothy Dunn works to bring out these stunning moments in nature. "The play of whites over dark grays and blues with quick peeks of yellow will evoke memories of the sight and scent of crisp morning storms," Dorothy says of this work. The piece was created using multiple raw and controlled pours of transparent and saturated acrylic paint on the canvas to achieve a layered depth. The painting can be hung either horizontally or vertically.

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!”
