DescriptionAn abstract digital painting : I love the striking difference between the desert and its beautiful flowers, so I created this piece to reflect the bold, warmth of the sun with the soft, feminine beauty of nature. To truly appreciate the detail of this painting look at it close up, or better yet look at Desert Flowers 1 or 2 where it really shows all the scrollwork!This piece can be purchased in a large format or separately on two canvases for a dramatic look in any room.
Sherrie Looper, Portland Metro Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement Nietzsche said "You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star."
After 25+ years of creative endevors, I've found this to be so true. It's true for the universe and it's true for one lonely soul to create. My creativity is a way of embracing the chaos that exists, knowing that it is the only seed to true beauty, and also a way of finding my own self.
I have dabbled in many artistic mediums throughout my life, but somehow digital art has grabbed my focus and been an exquisite medium to pour out what is in my head & heart. My favorite pieces have lots of texture & detail, color - albeit dark at times, and a fluid movement that hopefully reflects the abstract thoughts we all share. I like to play with themes of opposites and balance, as well as tempting those more baser instincts of sensuality with the unbridled joys of life.
Most of the time I don't even know what I will be creating until it comes pouring out of my brush (well, rather my mouse...), but my gut reaction to it tells me when it speaks to my soul. I hope my pieces will speak to yours as well.
I also entertain creating custom pieces and will be putting up my new website soon. Please feel free to email me with comments or requests. Thank you for looking! Namaste.
