Blooming Rainstorms by Dorothy Shain

Regular price $2,995.00 Sale



40" x 40"



Mixed media painting on birch wood panel with a 2" cradle (depth). This piece was created using a range of materials, including gouache, acrylic, charcoal, and pastel.



This body of work, specifically created for Waiting on Martha Home, is inspired by summer and the getaways it brings. It’s a time to dream of sipping fine wines along the coast of southern Italy or catching warm breezes while sailing through the south of France, while you are sitting pretty in your swimwear inspired by vintage textiles and patterns. The checkered high-waist bikini nods to 1960's textile designer Alexander Girard, while the florals remind me of lavenders and herbs inhaled in the Parisian countryside. The large-scale pieces serve as an opportunity to enlarge, play, and push the patterns I've developed on various pieces of swimwear. This collection is comprised of over 28 mixed media pieces ranging from acrylics
to gouache and ink. I find that mixing mediums allows for me to push the pieces to a place further than I thought they could go, increases the depth, and allows for pure play.

From her collages and patterns to her landscapes, Dorothy’s exploration of mediums is reflective of the colors, textures, and patterns drawn from her adventures around the globe.
