I have always had a love affair with Joan Mitchell and finally I just let loose and emulated her style. What a joy to simply use energy to paint.
Joan Mitchell is known for the compositional rhythms, bold coloration, and sweeping gestural brushstrokes of her large and often multi-paneled paintings. Inspired by landscape, nature, and poetry, her intent was not to create a recognizable image, but to convey emotions.
This painting was inspired by Joan Mitchell.
I love to explore technique and style and enlarge my skills. The paintings that I create are meant to bring you joy, and pleasure. I hope they inspire and uplift, as well as enhance your interiors.
I believe that our homes should be sanctuaries that surrounds us with comfort, color, beauty and the things we love.
I loved creating the colors and brush work in this work. I hope you feel an emotional connection to this work, or perhaps LOVE Joan Mitchell like I do.
I hope this painting makes you feel good, then I’ve accomplished what I set out to do.
Hopefully, you’ll want this painting in your home or office! Or maybe you’re considering this artwork for a special gift. This one is hard to part with today! Thank you, Joan!

Here we go again. Falling in love with the simplicity and the power of shape and the beauty of color and color combinations. I am continually in awe of all you can learn on the internet.
Today I fell in love with the weaving of Gunta Stolzl
I started searching about rugs and weaving and came across Christopher Farr | Cloth and then the search was on. His fabrics and rugs are incredible. I perused his site and love that he has made rugs based on the Bauhaus Designs. Perhaps he loved Gunta also.
BACK To Gunta
Then after more searching, I explored the works of “Gunta Stölzl who was a German textile artist who played a fundamental role in the development of the Bauhaus school’s weaving workshop. The weaving workshop was one of the most successful workshops at the Bauhaus. It was primarily attended by women. Here, they experimented with both traditional and industrialized weaving techniques. The colour and formal vocabulary was strongly influenced by Paul Klee’s theories. The Bauhaus fabrics were produced as yard goods, and new types of synthetic fibres were developed for upholstery fabrics. Read More
Paul Klee essentially developed his theory of art during his time at the Bauhaus. In 1920, in his book on the theory of art, ‘Creative Confession’, he stated, ‘Art does not reproduce the visible but makes it visible.’
Gunta Stolzl created immense change within the textile field by uniting art practices taught at Bauhaus with traditional textile techniques and became the first woman Master at the Bauhaus school. Read More History of Textile art. https://www.textileartist.org/textile-artist-gunta-stolzl-1897-1983/
Her works were by a human of rare talent.
Take the time to explore Gunta Stolzl a wonderful weaver. Read more about Gunta Stölzl who was a German textile artist who played a fundamental role in the development of the Bauhaus school’s weaving workshop. Wikipedia
When Gunta Stölzl leaves the Bauhaus in 1931 in the wake of a rebellion in the weaving workshop, Anni Albers takes over as head of the workshop, thereby becoming one of the few women to hold such a position. Learn more see: Josef and Anni Albers
