AN ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING
Celebrating the Spirit of the Equine
For the Love Horses Series 2008
by M Baldwin
20 x 24
on deep edge gallery wrap canvas
edges are painted ~ Ready to hang ~ no frame needed
Every breath I breathe is connected with the ebb and flow of energy around me. The sky is a cerulean blue, the sun radiating, while fingers of brilliant green push through the dirt and tiny flowers of pink, purple, red, orange, and yellow show their faces. The trees, grass, clouds, flowers, animals, insects: all undulating, creating with me. Never ceasing to amaze me, the warmth of the sun and the cool of the moon keep me in motion.
All of this, God has given to keep me thinking, gazing, releasing, absorbing, singing, growing... THIS IS WHY I WANT TO MAKE ART!

24 X 24 each
Showing soon at Chartres Street Gallery
New Orleans, Louisiana
Hi and thanks so much for inviting me to part of something so spectacular. My name is Stella M. Perkins and I am from the St. Louis Metropolitan area.
Making art is a way for me to accept what I look like and to remember the power I hold within me. By working with my hands, i.e. carving wood blocks, making collages, or painting, I can physically express tension, aggravation and complacency that I experience every day. My paintings and prints involve the nude figure, most often the female as the subject. My paintings are realistic, detailed, and explorative of color. With color I can reveal emotions such as disgust, contempt, love, and creativity.
Many of my influences include Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, Beardsley, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Marcel Duchamp, Picasso, Henri Matisse, Judy Chicago, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Mary Cassatt, Käthe Kollwitz, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, and many others.

This original is created by a glaze and drip technique,
very unstructured and freeing. I love the transparency of the oils as
the glazes run and drip to create the emerging subjects. This one
just jumped at me as I began to see nine koi fish happily
enjoying their swim. Details were added for final touch.
ENJOY the KOI
Thanks for viewing ~ Marcia
