Elaine Daily Birnbaum - Bits and Pieces

Watermedia painting by Elaine Daily-Birnbaum from Madison, WI.

Artist Statement: My abstract paintings reflect my interpretation of relationships (personal, environmental, architectural or conceptual) and are composed of mixed watermedia (watercolor, acrylic, ink, and water soluble crayon) on paper or canvas.

Subjects that I pursue in my paintings are often prompted by a word or an idea that may or may not be associated with a specific mental image. Developing the corresponding visual image in a painting relies deeply
on my personal knowledge and experience, and, therefore, is a uniquely personal expression.

Although my paintings are abstract in nature, they contain a universal connection that allows any viewer, whether or not they fully understand my particular art language, to experience a sense of interest and intrigue, as well as emotional response.
