One of the advantages I have as an artist is I’m not bogged down with a lot of formal training. I never went to art school, so I never learned the rules. Consequently I use color in a way that most trained artists would find odd. I’m not afraid to put a pink next to an orange next to a purple next to a green. As long as it works. I guess I get that from my Grandmother. She was a quilter who specialized in something called “crazy quilts”, a kind of abstract quilting color fest! They’re a real treat for the eyes, a combination of color and flow I find exciting to look at. Like grandmother, like grandson I guess.
That’s one of the things I like about these new statuary Christmas pieces for Lowe’s. The colors are terrific, the bright reds and blues on Santa, the combination of purple, pinks and deep green on the holy family, the contrasts on Mickey, even the bright yellow of Woodstock on the Snoopy design. Each one is a color feast for the eyes, and together the collection has an energy I love. Check them out exclusively at Lowe’s and let me know what you think.
