There are sixteen pieces in the Life Glow series (the four sold pieces are not displayed here. All sixteen can be viewed in this PDF). Life Glowdid not start out as a series. The first piece began as a watercolor painting with no particular goal in mind other than a color scheme and interesting shapes. Once I saw that one of the shapes was reminiscent of a woman's figure, I began to use that imagery deliberately. The circles indicate a life force within the woman's body, representing the beginning of life. The small shapes in the paintings give texture and visual interest, and to imply that life is all around us as well as within us. I liked the whole theme so well that I decided to do a series to see where it took me. Ultimately, the images became more and more abstract, without the suggestion of a female form, though still representing to me the force of life and creation. Some of the paintings are watercolor, some have pastel pencil embellishments, some are acrylic only, and others are acrylic and glass pebbles and/or beads as embellishment. The pieces range in size from 6.5” x 4.5” to 48” x 60”.
