Artist of the Day / Charlen Williamson

I seldom really enjoy abstract paintings, but Charlen’s work has a vividness and calmness and meditative quality that I find very appealing.  I’ve included the two photos of her paintings on the wall to show the general size of these.

“I love painting abstract art using deep, rich, bold, acrylic colors and incredible texture.

I’m constantly inspired by patterns, colors, and textures that I find in everyday life; even the most random and unlikely things can become inspirations for a painting.”


About destructivetesting

I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated.
