Painting in Memory

20130223-140128.jpg

Recently I was commissioned by a family member to paint a sunset in honor of a lost loved one. I was nervous about this painting because I became a little too obsessed with making it look “perfect”. However, something magical happened while I worked on the sunset-inspired abstraction and it turned out ok!

I feel so honored to be part of making a tangible memory for someone struggling such a sad loss. After working on bringing the sunset photo alive, I feel inspired and thankful.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Megan is an artist from the DC area living in Brooklyn, NYC. Her works right now reflect an attitude of experimentation, analysis of the elements of accident, and curiosity regarding the beauty created by the transparency and overlapping of ideas. Washes in the paintings, elements of spontaneity and use of collage are fundamental in many of the works. Inspirations for all works come from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature, silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness. Many of the works have been derived from experiences traveling in Spain, the Caribbean, and on the coast of the U.S..
