Elizabeth Matthews: Oh Happy Day! This is a series of 5″ x 5″ acrylic paintings on panel. Price: $39.00 each.

These painting are on view at my Rowan Tree Artist Studio in Herndon, VA. through January, 2022. To learn more read my series statement below the paintings.

In this series of small acrylic works on panel I am revealing what happens in my mind as I open my eyes to the colors of light that surprise me as the seasons change. This is a visual response to all the self help articles I’ve read about how to manage my morning hours. These works are about navigating complexity. Each new day provides an opportunity to choose a path and climb to new heights. With a consciousness of Piet Mondrian’s strict grid rules and his fierce attachment to primary colors and responding to the playful grid based castles of Paul Klee, I am reaching toward the sparsity of Agnes Martin while drawing lines that motivate me to get up each day and begin the climb again. 

These works are available in morning colors, ombre’ pastels all along the color wheel and also delicious greys for rainy days. If you have a favorite morning color please share it with me and I’ll add it to this collection of small morning navigations.
