My desire is to live in a state of amazement and joy. I feel closest to this when I am traveling and learning to see and express myself with an artist’s eye.
Color is my delight! Wonder of the beauty and vast diversity of this world is my motivation. I strive to express those qualities in my paintings. I primarily paint watercolors and dye on silk. Watercolor was my first love and that’s the media I use outdoors and when I travel. In my studio, silk is my passion because it is spontaneous, gives brilliant colors, and amazing sensuous richness that is irresistible. Silk painting is an ancient art. Silk is extremely durable and my steam set dyes will maintain their brilliance for a life time.
Lord Byron said, “To have joy one must share it.” That is the purpose of my art to share my amazement and the beauty I see everyday. I am currently sharing my art as a permanent member of Gallery 113, 125 1/2 N. Tejon, and at Whole Health Chiropractic, 1779A S. 8th St.Colorado Springs, CO, on my website www.mary-gorman.pixels.com on facebook.com/MaryGormanArtist and in various local shows. I am a member of Silk Painters International (SPIN), Pikes Peak Watercolor Society, Colorado Springs Art Guild, and Garden Artists.
