"This title was inspired by the Beatles' song about a girl in their dreams," explains Pamela. "The colors, brushwork and wistful pose of the figure create a subtle tension between movement and stillness." Part of Pamela's newest figurative series. She begins her process by using large brushes to create strong abstract shapes to form the structure of the composition. She stands several feet away from her canvas and works with long-handled brushes to achieve a loose feeling in the finished painting.
Pamela Blaies unexpectedly discovered her passion for art. A move with her family put her children in sad spirits, so to cheer them up she painted murals on their bedroom walls. With time, she began looking forward to painting more and more. She works in “alla prima” style, a technique in which artists don’t wait for paint to dry and work with layers of wet paint. The effects of light and shadows in the world greatly influence her work.
