“A revelation of color and light resonating from the heart of creation’s glory. Each brush stroke and every color placed on the canvas emanates from the depths of my spirit in an expression of the healing joy, and perfect love found in Heaven’s Divine Light. Every piece holds a presence in a pursuit to inspire the heart and turn the eye to a new expression of perfect love”
You’re my Daddy. You’re my King. I praise you and love you with all my being. I long to kiss your feet and hands. You’ve changed my life you’ve changed my heart. I can’t live without you, you guide my ways, my direction my soul is yours to take.
This February 6 – 9, 2015 don’t miss Amy Donaldson’s newest work featured in Brussels, Belgium’s Affordable Art Fair. Represented by Galerie Olivia Ganancia from Paris, France.
In my college painting classes, my painting prof used to always say that knew I was in class because he could literally hear me painting. You see, I have a tendency to dig my brushes into the surface of the canvas, a sensation and sound I quite enjoy ( though it’s pretty tough on expensive brushes! ). The work of Florida artist Amy Donaldson has that same kind of textural energy, I can almost hear the scrape of her brush and palette knife against the canvas.
Donaldson’s process is one of an additive and subtractive back and forth between the palette, paint, and canvas. Inspired by her ( and my! ) native state of Florida, Donaldson creates abstracts that hint at the broadness of a landscape, yet have the surface of an aged, graffiti covered wall.
In expressive abstract quality of her work, Amy’s paintings let us get lost in the play of color, light, and texture, each bouncing our eyes in excitement across the canvases.
Hanging with Norah, Natalie, and Louis, it’s what I needed after a crescendoing year with Art Basel as the finale! I’m enjoying a bowl of my first homemade chicken noodle soup. Not bad! A week off from painting and I’m missing it. Inspiration has been building, thoughts of the exciting new year bubble. As I rest in my leather chair, I notice it’s still crisp and new after a year, I can’t sit for long, with new blank canvases to butter with oil paint, I’m fresh and ready to get back into the studio!
Art Basel is one of the most prestigious art shows in the Americas. Artist and collectors from all over the world come to Miami for four colorful days. I was honored to showcase my artwork in two galleries. Anthony Liggins Gallery in South Beach, and Art Fusion Galleries in the Miami Wynwood Art District. Miami was full of energy. It was exciting to be a part of both galleries during such an epic modern art event. My new collection vibrantly hung on the expansive white walls like candy and full of life. I enjoyed meeting art lovers, collectors and artist. It was a great success and unforgettable experience.[scrollGallery id=2]
