Description Acrylic painting. This began as a series on nudes with fruits and vegetables, but spirituality crept in. I was painting this for a show in which the only stipulation was that it could not be religious. Who knew Eve would pop up with the apple and the tree of life behind her? I did not even see this until someone saw the piece and pointed it out to me.
Sondra Sula, Aurora, IL Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement Painting is my first love - I've been influenced by German Expressionism and Fauvism. Emotion through the use of color is very important to me. I adore extreme, brilliant color and have a preference for figurative work. I've been painting for many years, have been in over 40 shows, and have had previous representation with galleries in Chicago and Santa Fe.
I love art and work in several forms of art including photography, oil pastel and "Little Souls" which are found-object mosaic-like pieces, like small framed shrines. Creativity is a gift to be enjoyed by those who create and those who observe - so ENJOY!
Make sure to visit all of my galleries. I'll be adding new work on a regular basis. Thank you for visiting!
