Welcome to Michele’s Gallery. These are only a sampling of a few of my paintings.
I discovered the artist within me, not very long ago. I consider myself an “Intuitive Artist” and I play with lines, colours and patterns of flow as my paint brush grabs the paint off my palette and sometimes just brushes by or other times drums a rhythm into the surface of the canvas or wood that I am painting on. “Abstract Expressionism” Acrylic and Mixed Media Paintings on Canvas and Wood.
Inspiration for my art and paintings comes from a place deep within and without, touching the edges of the Universe even (conceptually), as I connect with my passion and desire to help others and make this, our World, a Better Place. When I decide to paint, it is from a quiet space of reflection and just being, as I tune into the energy of what is needed to be connected with that helps us all.
People… nature’s creatures, critters, plants, flowers, trees and forests… skies, oceans, rivers, ponds, mountains, valleys… ice crystals, rocks, gems and earth, metal, wind, fire, water… beauty, colour, lines, patterns and rhythm of sounds and light… sun, moon, stars and galaxies… All inspiring…
Whether painting for myself or for commission, I love getting immersed in the unfolding of vibrant, flowing and energizing pieces in peaceful connected space.
Pick a painting. Then, when you go into your quiet space, allow yourself to notice without judgement as you contemplate the colours, lines and patterns of flow. Feel the movement, feel the flow within and without. It is all about feeling and noticing and allowing beauty and flow.
Do drop in and say hello if you see me in my studio at VASA. Even when I am not there, you can stop by and have a seat and perhaps see if you are drawn to any of the Inner Reflections series of 4″ x 4″ acylic paintings on display. If you are drawn to one or two of them, check their titles! You may find the results interesting, fun and even intriguing!
TIP: If you have one of my paintings, have someone hold it in front of you and rotate it 90 degrees each time noticing what you notice in the painting. Then find the orientation that you prefer at that moment. No way is the “right” way to hang my paintings. Each is perfect. The Choice Is Yours!
