Ritornello is a repeated theme in classical music.  Here it refers to the repeated silver-leaf circles contrasted against linear elements. This  is an visual interpretation of music.  It is heavily textured with both paint and gesso.

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.”
