Mary Lou Dooley Waller

My painting process begins with making marks, drawing, or laying washes of color on canvas or paper
until what develops there begins to suggest to me a structure of forms and color relationships. I let
images that develop in this manner suggest the direction of the painting and ways in which light and
space may be manipulated into a coherent whole. Consequently it is not always possible for me to
know at the beginning what direction the work ultimately will take.
I am always conscious of color

About My Work:

My abstract and organic images are derived from the painting process and from natural phenomena. They are the result of my interest in color, luminosity, and movement.
