Abstract paintings by Ann Hart Marquis

Abstract Paintings

My abstract paintings come about by choosing my palette, surface and miscellaneous tools and brushes and then just playing with form, color, line, texture and pattern. I give little thought to composition or meaning or story line. I try to let my intuition memories and emotions flow.

I like to paint one layer with various brush strokes and marks. I then paint another layer, sometimes covering some of the bottom layer. This process continues until I am happy with the results.

Since my primary interest is nature, I am always envisioning some kind of natural memory or scene that I just let flow onto my paint brush and canvas.
