Transitions I - VI

Here are six non-representational paintings I did for a contemporary art show starting on Friday night and going for a week.  All of the paintings in the show are $99.00 or less.  There are some really interesting paintings in the show and if you enjoy contemporary art, it's worth a visit.

These six paintings are painted to flow together but also stand alone as individual paintings.  They can be hung vertically, horizontally or even in a circle (with all six) because the design is continuous through all of the pieces.
These are acrylic paintings on 12" x 12" gallery wrapped canvases with the sides painted black and they don't need frames.

Here are pictures of the individual paintings.
Transitions I

Transitions II

Transitions III

Transitions IV

Transitions V

Transitions VI

These are hung vertically in the gallery but the above pictures show them in their horizontal position.  At the gallery, they are turned 90 degrees clockwise for the design to work vertically.  The picture of all six at the top of this post shows how the design transitions between the canvases.

The regular price of these paintings is $150.00 each but during this show only, they are $99.00 each or all six for $550.00.  

Here are two more paintings that are in the show:
24" x 8"
Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, no frame needed
$99.00 for this show

Drifting Kelp
14" x 14"
Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, no frame needed
$99.00 for this show

The show is at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in downtown Santa Ana.   The opening for this show is this Saturday, Oct. 2nd from 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.  This gallery is part of the Santa Ana Artists Village and the first Saturday of each month (this Saturday) is their art walk from 7:00 - 10:00 when galleries and artists workshops are open to the public.  There are wonderful restaurants here also and it's a fun evening out.  I hope you can stop by the OCCCA and say hi on Saturday.  I will be there for sure from 6:00 to 8:00 and then I'm going to check out the other art and food venues myself.  I hope to see you there.  I will also be there on Friday night from 6:00-8:00 but if you come that night, the art walk won't be happening.  This is a grab and go show so some of the artwork may be purchased Friday night and gone before the art walk.

 The address for the OCCCA is 117 North Sycamore, Santa Ana, CA  92701 


  1. Very cool! I love the transitions piece. All the pieces are great! Good luck:)

  2. This sounds like a really cool show, I love seeing how other places have art events. We have a friday nite art walk down town. Very well attended, not sure how much sells, but it is great exposure and has revitalized our arts district. Your series is great, how nice to see it all together. It works very well and the colors are lively and bright.

  3. good luck at the show - what a fun idea having such a dynamic series!

  4. These paintings are fantastic Nancy!! I love the colors and shapes and the way they all go together as a group. I hope you will do more like this. Have a great time at the show!!

  5. Thanks Carrie.

    Thank you Mary Anne. We have several art walks in the cities around us and I love to go to them. Each one is different but all are a good, relaxing time.

    Thanks Robin. It was fun to paint. I'll have to try more acrylics. I like them but tend to use them more as would use watercolor.

    Thanks Theresa. I like the variety of ways to hang these paintings. If they don't sell, I think I'll hang them in a circle at our house. They would make quite a statement hung that way I think.

  6. Beautiful colors, beautiful compositions, I really like these abstractions.

  7. I love these! They have great energy and are very dynamic! Beautiful!

  8. Wow, love the abstracts Nancy. Very cool how they flow. Great idea!

  9. Thanks Leovi. Painting abstracts is fun.

    Thanks Nancy and Nancie.

  11. Love your paintings. Very original. Beautiful colors and patterns. Silvia
