Description This painting depicts a pair of cafe coworkers. The young waiter is tabulating something while putting some kitchen implement away. The young woman is thinking deeply, loosely present but not entirely. Strong color contrasts between the brown brick and woodwork and light gold walls, and analogous color harmonies in the warm flesh and fabric tones create a solidity and sense of balance.
Faye Cummings Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement I've been involved in the arts for 30+ years. My paintings have been displayed in both group and solo exhibits and have been featured in various publications. My work is included in private and corporate collections.
From 1986 to 1998 I produced over 100 acrylic and acrylic collage paintings in thematic series, sometimes accompanying the images with corresponding poetry. Early series explore issues of social concern. Later bodies of work are figurative explorations of light and color with an emphasis on human dignity.
Since 1997 I've enjoyed learning about digital art and exploring a variety of software programs. Regardless of the medium my work is a celebration of people, nature, spirit and life.
