About the Art

What the artist saysI always want explore playfulness in my lines, colors, and subject matter. I see things in little animated short stories, who they are, where they are going, the dialog and try to catch the sense of the moment and life in the one frame.
Why we like itCourtney leaves no edge unpainted, playing with the perspective of the (seemingly) never ending wait for ice cream by continuing her work along the sides of her canvases.
Where we hang itThis is one of few pieces of this size that can stand on its own, due to its depth, vibrancy and detail. Whatever you do, don't frame this one: half the fun exists around the edges.
