Piece description from the artist
My inspiration for Treasure III came from a beautiful dream, where I was at Treasure Island Beach behind the Montage in Laguna Beach, CA. This series was done “en plein air” on the beach in my dream.
The original work is made of many materials including eco-friendly water-mixable oil with no added chemicals, organic sand, metallic earth pigments, and recycled glass particles.
Poetic Art Statement: Bring the Treasure Within.
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.
