This painting is part of a body of work called “Shades of Gray” where I have a limited palette but unlimited imagination! This piece is the third in the series of this still life that keeps emerging in my mind's eye, so I keep painting it. Starting with different values of gray and white, using brushes and fingers, I use exaggeration of shapes everywhere throughout the piece. The vase and the orchid-like flowers are immersed in dancing white-yellow light. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Anne

Born in New York and raised in Connecticut, Anne Dosso-Powell is the daughter of a jazz drummer and the granddaughter of a Radio City Music Hall conductor. The result: art and music have always been at the forefront of her academic and creative endeavors. Anne’s emotionally driven paintings use color, texture, transparency and distortion to express a spectrum of feelings and concepts. Embracing a variance of styles, her work fluctuates between abstract expressionism to delicate impressionistic realism. She also uses exaggeration, and some primitivism in her work. Most of her paintings have a combination of styles, best described as an improvisation if you will.
