My Oil Painting

I recently had a conversation with another artist through a family dinner. When the artist asked me what I did, I described my oil painting. I said I did mostly landscapes, but I was also attracted to cityscape elements. I love bringing out the colors I discover in cracked concrete, peeling plaster, or alternating brick work. The artist exclaimed "Oh, you love painting with texture!" I said, rather, I love creating the feel of texture by experimenting with color within color with quick choppy brush strokes. Here is an example where I painted a hospital sign in downton Easley.

Blue Door by Gabrielle

Blue Door is my business of selling paintings, drawings, and jewelry. The art presented on this blog is from my portfolio and present work I'm developing.

I've chosen the name Blue Door because the color schemes I choose usually have blue undertones. Also, I'm fascinated by views looking through openings such as doors, windows, and keyholes. I primarily use these motifs in my paintings and drawings. Currently, I'm experimenting with wire wrapping inspired by vine wrappings and organic forms in nature.

Contact me at for commissions and for further information on my art. Please feel comfortable to make comments and critiques on my work.
