Maggie LaPorte Banks Go Gently Original Abstract Painting Oil Paint on a Linen canvas, mixed medium. Size: H 40cm x W 40cm x D 2cm Sold Unframed (Please note that in situ images are purely an indication of how a piece may look). Trying to capture the peace and stillness of the day. I was drawn to the paleness of the colour of duck egg blue with its corresponding colour of lemon yellow and a small square of lilac. The work has depth and texture. Maggie LaPorte Banks artist comments: “My Art is routed in landscape, influenced by childhood memories of Donegal, by Lough Swilly, surrounded by dark mountains. I spent ten years living near to the Brecons Beacons and painting using a tent as a studio in all seasons. For over thirteen years I was an artist in residence in a cottage on the end of Cape Cornwall overlooking the Brisons at different times of the year. Therefore, I have a vast amount of passion for the skies, sea and mountains which I love to involve within my paintings. My recent works have been developed from these roots and are becoming much more abstract, focusing on ‘the essence of place’ through the colours I use and emotions I have created. I work mainly in oils, acrylic and mixed media, sometimes adding unique materials such as sand, carborundum, iron fillings and many other products I feel the work dictates.
