Line, Color & Movement
Monica Maria Grassl Samayoa
April 8 - 29, 2016
The title of the exhibit, Line, Color, and Movement, represents the elements that form the basis of each of my paintings. The combinations of color derived from a dream I had for each painting. The purpose is to evoke a richness and warmth that would accompany the painting in any environment. Special thanks to my Ft. Worth “family” and the Ft. Worth Community Arts Center. ---Marie de Grassl
