This piece is very emotional for me thus it came out raw and bleeding. Again, my struggle with teenager and my own turbulences wit...h my soul searching, admitting my parental mistakes that we all make, that hunt me all the time, plus turmoil that we experience on and off with my smart, intuitive child--all were expressed in this piece. It might look like a surreal nature landscape or as for me, looking into the dome of a cathedral perhaps. The bold reds and ultramarine blues were moved with the palette knife aggressively, with the intervals of hope of warm yellow strokes. The painting ships in late August, still wet. read more
I consider myself a reactionary artist, focusing on the process of painting and the energy in creating. The forms create the conve...rsation; each mark informing the next. This abstract exploration of the medium as my subject matter allows me to intuitively respond to past memories and experience. I capture the essence of my moments, both transitory and eternal. Each painting tells a personal story while still engaging and relating to the viewer.

2' X 3' mixed media painting of a Geisha on cradled hardboard wood panel. Sealed in a clear archival acrylic. Ready to hangAbout t...he artist:My work is emotionally layered, messy, textured, and rhythmic in thought. Much like an improvised solo, scattered color often moves freely in and out of the structured chord progression, of an idea, and/or feeling. I enjoy using colorfully sewn characters in my paintings to make lighthearted statements of frustration, motivation, love, lust, and absurdity. However, there are moments in my work where the process, of emotional release, is more important than the idea. The meaning is then left for the viewer to ascertain. in any case, a layered improvised mess of scratchy lines and colorful noise invade each piece creating a sense of movement and musicality. I currently live and work in Minnesota and hold a Bachelors in Fine Art from the College of Visual Arts in Saint Paul MN. read more

This is a varnished acrylic painting on heavy duty gallery wrapped canvas that is ready to hang. The sides are painted orange with... magenta border. The colors and shapes are bright like candy.About the artist:My name is Erika Colgrove. I am a Vango artist. I struggled for many years to find the value of art and my place in creating it. I was always a bit confused about why everyone else seemed to "get it" and enjoyed making it. I took drawing and pottery in high school and struggled miserably in both. The highlight of my high school art creations was a two-foot tall ashtray made to look like a lumpy palm tree. When I got to college, I found a loophole that allowed me to take creative writing instead of art. A few years ago, I found myself drawn in by various different works of art. I started to understand visual appeal and the emotional connection that art has with life. It was because of this emotional evolution that I became interested in capturing some of this beauty in paint. I hope you enjoy my art. It brings me a lot of joy to make it and I hope it can bring the same joy to you. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. read more
This work depicts the famous Narrows at Zion National Park. I am always drawn to dramatic contrasts between sun and shadows and th...eir is no better place than Zion for this effect. I also tried to express the brilliant and varied color of the canyon walls. About the artist:Decades ago I took several art courses at the Glassell School of Art in Houston, TX. I took a long break from creating art but recently started up again after discovering that having a creative outlet is a necessity and not a luxury.

I then met my wife, changed careers, and grew to love Houston, where I have lived for the past 27 years. My other passions are hiking, playing Scrabble, and being the best Dad I can be. Becoming an artist is a journey for me. I don't know where that journey will take me and that is exciting. read more

Looking at the yellow addition to her black and white charcoal drawing, instead of scolding the act, she simply took the marker and led me to a blank sheet of paper. After that, whether it was drawing a doodle in a class notebook or the self-made comic books that filled my drawers, I couldn't slow down. It wasn't until my later years of college that I learned I had an interest in painting read more
