We would like to welcome another new artist, Rosemary Craig of Cedar Rapids.

"My style of painting (often referred to as action painting) involves pouring, dripping, throwing, etc. the paint onto a canvas lying flat. Since my work in acrylics is born of many years working with watercolors, my pieces can sometimes resemble a watercolor, with unpainted portions of the canvas or negative space. My work is very spontaneous and I purposefully allow the paint to drip down the side of the canvas. I enjoy the way the texture of the canvas influences the flow or texture of the paint as it dries, as it would with watercolor paper. Even though I paint abstracts, I continue to find all my inspiration in and from nature. There are many things in life that move us. It can be something as natural & simple as the sound of wind blowing through trees or as manmade & complex as political views. I prefer the natural, as the manmade oftentimes frustrates me or worse."
