Piece description from the artist
Led to paint behind the Montage Laguna Beach on coastal pieces since 2014, on the beach of my dreams. I had a dream on my birthday in 2015, which guided me to this painting place which is still my favorite outdoor location to paint, although I have painted at many beach locations up and down the California coast. Most of the series has natural beach sand embedded, and now sometimes seashells as well. Sometimes the artwork turns out more abstract, and other times more impressionistic, depending on my intuitive process.
Michele Morata’s talents have drawn her into many forms of painterly expression over the past 20 years, but her style is always contemporary, transitional and unique. Working with water-based oils and over 150 imported organic texture mediums, she considers herself an ‘eco friendly’ artist in relation to most of her artwork series.
Michele feels passionate about her study of the meditative quality of nature and observations as they relate to earth, wind, water, and sky. Her love of colors, natural space, and nature elements inspires her to produce ethereal contemporary abstract / modern original artwork. These intuitive one-of-a-kind unique paintings combine her love of tranquility with emotional release.
Michele's paintings are featured in fine art galleries, private and corporate art collections, as well as movie sets, TV shows/commercials, and book covers. Currently, she is under (3) museum reviews.
