Description A day at the beach is a world of infinite possibilities. The water, the shells, sounds of crashing waves, the planes going by pulling ad banners, the bright umbrellas, all the kids, and last but certainly not least... great big elaborate fantastical castles... with moats, towers, windows, and flags flying! She never quite gets there, as that rhythmic, pounding surf continues to call her in and away from that castle of her dreams.
ERIN PICKERING, NJ Member Since May 2014 Artist Statement Painting is my driving passion! Without it I feel disconnected! I work in vibrant, lively color resulting in cheerful, uplifting pieces. My subject matter ranges with my passions... shoes, gluten-free living & food, vintage fashion and reflecting the beauty of african american and multi-racial children! Through my art I am celebrating life, nature, creativity, motivation and color. I am obsessed with color and it is quite often my inspiration - and where I live in my art.
I found watercolor in college, while getting my degree in Fashion Design and Illustration, and was immediately fascinated by its vibrancy, fluidity, and the challenge of a medium that can’t be entirely controlled. It is exciting – sometimes nerve wracking… especially as I near the completion of a painting. So I continue to learn and experiment.
