“The Snorkeler” by Marga Stanley. Acrylic on wood panel.
“My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it all over again, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt. With each coat of paint, whether it’s watercolors, gouache, acrylics and oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with….for instance, the main images on my mini whimsy collection, were painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife). I love the movement of things… whether it’s the hair or feather on a bird’s head or the drooping of a flower’s leaf…I want to make my painting live and breathe.”
