Sheila DeLaquil – Painter


It’s the adventure of painting that moves me to start a new piece.

I begin with inspirations of color, movement and structure, and as the painting progresses, I think more about harmony and composition. I keep my mind open to playfulness and unpredictability, realizing that more often than not, things that “just happen” are a gift.

My work is experimental and expressive. I make marks and add shapes. I paint, I draw, I reflect on what I see. Mystery is important. The unexpected is a bonus. The challenge is to figure out what’s next. And when to stop.
