Perfection. Is there such a thing? So why are we always trying so hard to find it in all we do? I see no reason to paint perfection. In fact, I adore imperfection. Beauty in the imperfect. No one item is the same, everything and everyone different, not perfect but indeed beautiful!
Imperfection, one of the reasons I love vintage prints and art. Most images from antique and vintage books come with beautiful little imperfections, I love them. So you will find a lot of my work based on vintage, retro or antique images, especially my collage work.
I also rely heavily on color, value and mark making. I rarely blend and mix on the palette, I prefer to allow the colors to commingle and remain bright on the board or canvas. I constantly push the boundaries of color theory. Although I do use local color in my work, I try to punctuate it with imaginative, unexpected color choices. Tons of light and darks. I love to accentuate the shadows and the light. It creates such drama, much like the chiaroscuro used by the old masters.
I hope you like the original art created by US artist, Debi Peters! Thanks for looking at my work.
