Sandy Welch, West Hartford, Ct. Member Since April 2016 Artist Statement "Painting is vital to my life" I paint from a youthful, fresh, feminine and passionate perspective. My paintings are filled with the delicious colors of summer. My most recent work is a turn toward abstraction. This new direction is the same vibrate palette, energetic mark makings and gestural flourishes of delight! My canvasses POP with provocative color and flirtatious style! 'A Calamity of color in the very best way!!!!!
