The sweet, spicy, cool smell that you get when standing in a redwood forest was the feeling behind this expressionist painting. The forest is one of my favorite places to be. This piece is painted on gallery wrapped canvas with the sides painted as a continuation of the front. It comes wired and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Kerri

"One of the reasons I paint is that I cannot put the things I see and feel into words,” says Kerri Blackman. Painting is the primary way that Kerri communicates her love of nature. She approaches her pieces intuitively, facilitating a conversation between the paint and canvas. The artist appreciates the challenges she faces in her abstract work because it allows her to exercise her creativity. The problem-solving that occurs while painting produces unexpected aesthetic results, and helps Kerri avoid boredom or “artistic cliches.” She strives to unite inspiration, color, and mark-making to harmoniously portray the elements of the Pacific Northwest environment around her that she finds most beguiling–leaves dancing in the breeze, light reflected in puddles, and the untamable gray ocean.
