Abstract Oil Mixed Media on Stone Paper. Inspired by Brian Rutenburg.

Cheryl aims to activate the senses of her viewers in her layered immersive artworks. 
I love layers and color and choose to create non-objective paintings because I find the creative process to be straightforward honest and satisfying. I start with a line or a charcoal mark followed by a  black or Payne's grey fluid oil movement or line. This single mark or line on a blank surface provides a starting point for an intuitive exploration of the visual language found in abstraction. Working in mixed media: graphite, oil,  acrylic and collage, allows me to layer and rework textured surfaces – with each painting resulting in a delightful discovery of things unseen.
I recently was able to attend a lecture by artist Brian Rutenburg at Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte, NC and was inspired to create areas of color and shape inspired by nature. I was enthralled by Rutenburgs use of color and subtle gradations and tones.
