All Art, Great & Small

An invitation went out to all the artists at Art & Soul Gallery to create miniature paintings for the featured wall. Small paintings are easy to hang in various places of interest in ones home or given as a special gift to that special person. Enjoy the diversity of styles from abstracts to realistic to impressionistic; and from mediums from oils to pastels to acrylics to watercolor to mixed media. All Art, Great and Small created by Art & Soul Gallery Artists! Dulcimer Music by Douglas Ross.

“Fluid Universe Series” by Mary Ann Czermak

“I like to use subtle blends of colors to give the paintings a peaceful and soothing quality that gently radiates from within. The geometric forms are the background that provides the beginning structure. The curved accents of sculpted wood are symbolic and influenced by Asian characters. Each wood piece being a physical reminder of the possible strokes that the hand can make. The heat-treated copper symbolizes the fire within each of us that strives to be recognized. Each painting also has Chinese characters that give each piece an additional meaning. The small squares are my way of organizing and balancing each painting to bring a sense of calm and equilibrium that finishes the structure of the painting. My goal with my art is to capture a tranquil mood so that the viewer can step away from the chaotic world that we live in.”
