Mary Rush Gravelle: Painter in Acrylic and Mixed-media, Digital Artist
I am a visual artist living in Sedona, Arizona, where the southwest landscape is awe-inspiring. Since moving to the southwest in 2006, the landscape has been an integral part in my daily life as well as informing my art. There is no finer creator than the original source of it all, God / Goddess. Color, intuition, nature, and energy are sources that create a curiosity large enough to explore on the canvas. Graceful form, shape, and beauty soothe me. Angular juxtapositions and vibrant color excite me. Portraying realism is not important to me. The sway of a tree branch, the rich colors of a sunset, the bold red of a fire hydrant, or the angular shapes formed by rooftops, these are some of the things that intrigue and inform my art.
