Top Local Artist, Amy Donaldson Attracts National Attention at Art Basel Miami
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]
Today is a new fresh day. I am ready to dive into my powdery pigments. They are like colorful candy to my eyes. I love to mix new colors on the canvas with my fingers and work the texture layer upon layer, like a cake. Each layer chisels the stress and frustrations of life away from my heart. I think about my family and friends and those who are in difficult times.
I will then finish the piece with energetic bounces of color that dance though the painting representing laughter and joy. With each painting I want to bring life and love to hurting hearts and struggling souls.
