Oceans 5

Oceans 5 - Acrylic Painting by Janet Whittle Freedman

Oceans 5 – Acrylic on Canvas by Janet Whittle Freedman – 36″ x 40″

My past work has been a melding of both the representational and the abstract. Recently I have focused on moving more deeply to an abstract form, removing any attention from recreating a piece of the physical world and allowing myself the freedom to place emphasis on the nonphysical – the mood of a place or scene, or the emotion its awakens in me. I continue to have both color and texture as themes, and in this painting used a variety of materials include modeling paste, burlap, and imprints to create textural patterns.
