Piece description from the artist
On each of her trips to the southwest, Marcia has been increasingly fascinated by the land and the unusual shapes, symbols and history of the area. This painting represents her interest in capturing the nature of the area and the way her senses respond to the feelings this area awaken in her.
After a career in engineering and management, Marcia Berg Haskell retired and began to find new outlets for her creativity. In this pursuit, she began a second career as writer and an artist.
Marcia creates abstract paintings using acrylics and inks, and her work often features an emphasis on texture. In many of her paintings, she uses metallic and glittery inks to highlight details in her work, displaying emotion and feelings while using photography to capture the patterns and imagery of her world. In this process, Marcia captures natural imagery and patterns around her while developing techniques to create photographic abstractions that start with real photographic images as well as purely computer-generated images.
