Halina Domanski Profile Photo

Halina Domanski

Yuba City, CA

I pursue no specific direction in the sense of a style.
The versatility of my work can be attributed largely to my refusal to study only one style or medium of art .I believe in art that is bold and kinetic . I begin a painting with no definite preconceptions , but simply an impulse , a subliminal thought about color or texture , an unarticulated desire .And an almost breathless excitement about the idea of doing painting . The creative process I begin with a layering ,then smearing and scrapping . The end result is a vibrant painting with amazing textures and colors .
