"Fortitude I" and "Fortitude II" were inspired by two beautiful trees whose leaves turned gorgeous, seasonal colors, but refused to fall when surrounding trees had succumbed to the weather. The piece is finished on the edges, varnished, wired, and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Krispen

Krispen Spencer’s artistic process is about more than putting paint to canvas. “Painting, for me, is not only a form of expression, but also one of transformation,” she says. Color is paramount in her dynamic drip paintings. Krispen developed her brushless technique of pouring fluid acrylics during her MFA studies at Texas Women’s University. She uses paint of varying viscosities to achieve different textures, letting the medium act on its own behalf. The tactile process celebrates the inherent physicality of paint and the poetic nature of serendipitous uncertainty. The artist’s colors dance across the canvas in fortuitous compositions that embody Krispen’s creative spirit.
