This piece has a line that was provided by my friend Phillip J. Mellen. We have entered into a collaboration and at the moment he is working on some pieces that he will send to me to add my bits to. This is the second one I’ve completed though I do have a couple others started. At the moment I have two collaborative projects on the go, and I find it to be a rewarding experience to work with others.
An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Harriet Bellows.
“The foundation for my paintings has developed around a platform of structure, line, balance and color as defined by simplicity. The element of abstract within my work further defines my ideas. In 2003 I began a series of figurative abstracts that define my idea of simplicity and its consideration for honesty.” HB
