Assemblage….is what best fits my work…

I first discovered the shadows on a piece of ceramic work at the DeYoung museum…and one day a neighbor had a garage sale with a box of unused adding machine tape….and the idea struck me!

So when I use adding machine tape or newspaper…I look to see what kind of shadows occur….they vary as the light changes…

The paper is painted before placing on the canvas…

And on occasion …I will add Kosher salt…grout or more paint to achieve the look I’m trying to create.

There is a website link on my about the artist page that shows a demonstration of a paper (assemblage) flag at its creation.

Ann Nunziata

Ann updated on her display at Art Gallery Napa Valley today.  Ann writes, “I decided that I should unify my exhibit to display a single medium.” Ann comments that there is an ongoing debate amongst artists about how best to display ones work.  Some feel a variety of mediums best informs the viewer about the artist, while others maintain that a consistent look and feel is desirable.  The latter is the approach of Open Studios Napa Valley where Ann has participated in recent years, that is when she not been traveling in September.

Marlene Haas Inktober

Marlene writes “
“Bubblegum “ is an ink painting: 14 x 14.   I began this ink series when I  found Zentangles  designs several years ago.   I liked the meditative aspect of repeated designs in Ink and color patterns.   Zentangles and pattern paintings  are part of my creative lexicon.   

 Inktober celebrates creations composed with inks and is highlighted the month of October.

 Bubblegum  is displayed at the Artist of The Valley, 1307 First Street. Napa, CA.

Marlene writes, “I became fascinated with the night sky.  This spring I viewed the full moon several consecutive nights.  I covered amazing colors and values of blue gray lit by the moon.  A new painting series was born,  I am now working on the 10th canvas in this series.  Four of the canvases are in the Art Gallery Napa Valley at 1307 First Street, downtown Napa.

Sunshine Moeschler

I am driven to create.  I make abstract paintings that sometimes contain elements of realism.  

My work explores gestural movement and layering of color, texture, and line to create a multitude of connections.  It can be messy and dramatic, but if you listen to the patterns you may create your own visual music.

The possibilities are endless and I hope that inspires other creatives to explore art in daily life.  

Art is essential and I’m motivated to share it.
