Gestural abstraction capturing the feeling of a windy fall day in the garden. Golden leaves and flowers swirl in the blue breeze. "In the beginning stages of this painting, the name stuck in my head, "What Goes Around," says Faith. "This has never happened before, where I feel as though I am making a painting to justify the name, but for some crazy reason I was compelled to follow the directions I felt I had been given. Maybe it was a challenge... maybe too much coffee... maybe a feisty muse with nothing better to do on a beautiful weekend than to 'test' an artist with a playful sense of humor."
West Hollywood, California
Faith Taylor began her career as a self-taught mural artist in Los Angeles during the late 1980s. She was commissioned to paint over 2,000 murals in homes and businesses across Southern California before switching to canvas 14 years ago. Currently, Faith’s guiding inspiration is the concept of a far-off horizon. She finds hope and comfort in looking to the distance, to the future. “Horizons inspire me,” the artist says. “I find depth comforting as it not only gives my eyes a place to wander, but my mind a place to go and relax or explore.” Faith creates depth in her oil paintings by applying multiple layers of oil paint and glazes, waiting for days in between to allow the paint to dry. Faith's methodical layering technique is reflected in the patient and thoughtful mood of her artwork. The muted, earthy palette she employs encourages the viewer to meditate on each painting, gazing deeply to the abstracted horizon line.
