ARTIST STATEMENT

Painting is my passion. I work in oils, watercolor, and love to draw in ink. Sandy Delehanty - Chew on ThisMy subjects run the gambit from abstracts to zebras. When I find a muse that excites me I tend to take off on a tangent and produce a series of paintings. Currently I am working on two series of paintings. First, my series of silly giraffes and other whimsical animals intended to make people smile. I see it as my antidote to the deluge of depressing news that we are bombarded with these days. My other series is based on a new technique I am exploring, “pouring” watercolors instead of painting them with brushes.
