Palette Ten

Acrylic paint, acrylic ink, glitter on canvas, 2016, 6"w x 6"h

The Palette painting series grew from noticing the way the bowl I mix my materials in started to look once a number of paint layers built up. Transferring the excess paint onto canvases became a way for me to capture these accidental compositions. There is truthfulness to my imagery that comes from a method of painting that challenges tradition. I paint in a way that once a mark has been made, it will not disappear. The speed at which I paint lends itself to a method that allows for no second judgments or overthinking marks that have been laid down.

    Alyssa, your work is just beautiful. When I read what it means to you and how you compose it, with once a mark is made, it will not disappear,
    that is awesome. You have brilliance going on in that brain of yours. Keep up the wonderful work.
