"On a Happy Day arrived about an hour ago and is now hanging on my living room wall above the sofa. She's so beautiful, she brings tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for bringing such beauty into our world!  Thanks too for 'Embrace of the Mountain.'  "~ Jeanine, Wisconsin

Abstract Expression
Playful Colors & Patterns in a Quilt Design

Letting go of previous painting styles, Fagan sought fresh inspiration with her retreat. Giving herself time to paint unrestrictedly allowed her to fuse styles and color ideas with her love of fiber and fabrics. In this painting, one can see it actually developing as the quilts on the clothes line and peach tree and shutters begin to all look like patterned fabrics juxtaposed in a quilt of color.

"Painting from my balcony, I wandered down into the village with my easel to paint some of the backyards up close. This painting is inspired by one of those. Leaping from the plein air to this more abstracted composition, the peach tree became a tapestry in itself."


Oil on Linen mounted to cradled wood panel, Painted wood float frame, wired to hang as shown
20" x 16" x 1.5"

When she travels, Dorothy paints on unstrecthed linen for its light-weight ease to pack. Returning home, she mounts it on a cradled wood panel. Edges are 1 1/2" deep, painted charcoal violet, matte finish. This shadow edge contrasts with the shimmering satin painting and creates a stunning contemporary presentation.


If you prefer a gold frame, Dorothy recommends a striking, gold float frame for a clean, contemporary style. Face is gold, edges and inside shadow are black. (select below, not shown, email for photo)
