Literally a study in red--exploring the effects saturated reds have visually on other colors. The results vibrate with energy! It was a fascinating and unexpected journey.  The  painting is primarily acrylic paint, but with accents of fluorescents and marks made with Inktense pencils.  It's a stunning piece that has won numerous awards.

Getting to Know Anne

Anne’s body of work is marked by her passion for artistic experimentation. She enjoys using offbeat tools to create texture in her work, and builds layer upon layer of paint until she achieves an interesting effect. Anne’s focus on texture may be the result of her background in ceramics. “I married a handsome potter and together we created pottery that sold to galleries and craft shops across the country,” she says. Ultimately the couple opened their own gallery, and, lacking the time necessary to make her ceramics, Anne turned to the slightly less labor-intensive medium of painting. “We have since retired from the day-to-day running of the gallery and I paint every day.”
