The vibrant purple and orange of sunset often ripples like fire and smoke when reflected in the moving waters of the wetlands.  I recreated the sunset's river of colors using multiple raw and controlled pours of transparent and saturated acrylic paint on canvas to achieve a layered depth.  The piece can be displayed 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!”
