Rosalynn Rothstein was our brave artist to be the first to work in the front window this afternoon. Rosalynn works primarily in acrylics, adding in mixed media and collage elements such as ink, marker, pastel, glitter, paper, and cloth. Her bold and vibrant abstract work is often in quite large scale, so completing a 16″x20″ canvas in an afternoon was not too daunting for her. Today’s piece evolved through quite a few stages as Rosalynn built up layers of color and texture, reworking the composition in sometimes subtle ways and sometimes very dramatically. You may not be able to see evidence of all the stages in the finished piece, but the colors and shapes of each stage influenced the direction that the next step took.
Thanks to Rosalynn and the onlookers who braved the April showers to come out and observe today!
