This abstract expressionist work was inspired by the sweet scents of spring when new growth begins. The piece is made of acrylic paint, colored pencil, and pastel on a thick, gesso-primed sheet of watercolor paper. It will require a frame for display.

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.
