Description From an abstract landscape waterscape art painting by Itaya titled 'Dog Days'. This abstract painting reminded me of the steamy hot days I grew up with in the south and when we would go swimming. The painting is filled with bright shades of orange, pink, lavender, green, aqua, yellow, white and brown.
Itaya Lightbourne, KS state Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement I believe that my paintings come from a place that all artists must tap into in order to express themselves. Once one is in that creative flow then all things are possible. Creating in some way every day is a wonderful discipline and it keeps one in that creative flow or in that ‘place’ that only those that create know of. This place is where time stops and all else ceases to exist. When I am painting or creating with another medium this place becomes my entire universe. It is a sacred and treasured place that I find myself needing to connect with time and time again. Hopefully you will enjoy the products of my time spent in that wonderful creative space.
I have been painting for over 20 years and my artwork and designs have been collected by collectors around the world. I primarily paint with acrylic paints.
