RE: composition. How do you fill space? How do you achieve balance? For my money composition is essential to creating a successful piece. It the way. Recently it occurred to me that I’m still approaching space from a 3D point of view. I see the floating figures as objects. Really flat sculpture. How about you? What part of your history informs your present? * * * * * #paintingprocess #artcollection #artforhospitals #colorfieldpainting #nonrepresentationalart #artfinder #abstractlandscape #acrylicpainting #art #arte #happyabstract #paintingwithatwist #paintingonpaper #contemporarypaint #contemporarypaintingartist #curators #askacurator #livingwithart #hospitalityart #collagepainting #abstractcollage #contemporaryabstraction #abstractmag #artadvisory #artadvisoryservice #artconsulting #artandinteriors #newpainting #newartdealers #maryzeran at Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Artists usually have a story in mind when they’re working. It can be about recreating the way the wind feels at the ocean. Other times, it’s about politics. This piece is about the beauty of color. How seeing a certain kind of green can bring joy. ~ A Very Bold Green Swath, 30”x22”, acrylic, Duralar on paper, Mary Zeran, Private Collection. * * * * * * #paintingprocess #artcollection #artforhospitals #colorfieldpainting #nonrepresentationalart #artfinder #abstractlandscape #acrylicpainting #art #arte #happyabstract #paintingwithatwist #paintingonpaper #contemporarypaint #contemporarypaintingartist #curators #askacurator #livingwithart #hospitalityart #collagepainting #abstractcollage #contemporaryabstraction #abstractmag #artadvisory #artadvisoryservice #artconsulting #artandinteriors #newpainting #newartdealers #maryzeran at Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Another way to think about creating landscape paintings is from an abstract point of view. The land can get into your heart in glimpses. It might not be about realism, but sensations or how moving through the landscape feels. ~ The Finger, 20”x16”, acrylic Duralar on paper, c Mary Zeran.

Looking up close can tell you so much about the artist. That’s where the details are...the minute decision making. It’s seeing the art through the artist’s eye....walking in their shoes. ~ Look close. Take a walk in the shoes of an artist. I dare you. 😊* * * * * #paintingprocess #artcollection #featuredartist #colorfieldpainting #nonrepresentationalart #artfinder #abstractlandscape #acrylicpainting #art #arte #happyabstract #paintingwithatwist #paintingonpaper #contemporarypaint #contemporarypaintingartist #curators #askacurator #livingwithart #beautifulpeopleliveart #collagepainting #abstractcollage #contemporaryabstraction #abstractmag #artadvisory #artadvisoryservice #artconsulting #artandinteriors #newpainting #newartdealers #maryzeran at Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Shinrin-yoku...the Japanese consider taking in the forest atmosphere or forest bathing to be healing. Today it’s 35 degrees. My brain says it’s warm. The breeze feels different. The dogs are outside being feisty. I guess we are all looking forward to some Forest Bathing. ~ Forest Bathing, 30"x30", acrylic, Dura-Lar on paper, 2016 copyright Mary Zeran, Mary Zeran, Studio (319)363-0053 * * * * * #paintingprocess #artcollection #artforhospitals #colorfieldpainting #nonrepresentationalart #artfinder #abstractlandscape #acrylicpainting #art #arte #happyabstract #hospitalityinteriors #paintingonpaper #contemporarypaint #contemporarypaintingartist #curators #askacurator #livingwithart #hospitalityart #collagepainting #abstractcollage #contemporaryabstraction #abstractmag #artadvisory #artadvisoryservice #artconsulting #artandinteriors #newpainting #shinrinyoku #maryzeran at Cedar Rapids, Iowa

When my father was in the hospital nothing gave me comfort like art. Spending time looking and dreaming was a much needed relief from a very scary situation. ~ Felling so grateful to offer comfort to all who spend time at Reliant Medical Group in Westborough, MA. * * * * * #paintingprocess #artcollection #hospitalityart #colorfieldpainting #nonrepresentationalart #artfinder #hospitalityinteriors #acrylicpainting #art #arte #happyabstract #paintingwithatwist #paintingonpaper #contemporarypaint #contemporarypaintingartist #curators #askacurator #livingwithart #corporateart #collagepainting #abstractcollage #contemporaryabstraction #abstractmag #artadvisory #artadvisoryservice #artconsulting #artandinteriors #corporateartconsulting #healthcaredesign #maryzeran at Cedar Rapids, Iowa

There’s a lot of artists who say their process is intuitive. I’ve been thinking a lot about this. What does the word intuitive imply? From the gut? Spontaneous? Childlike? Untrained? Hmmm. Insert your interpretation here... It’s occurring to me that the word improvisational is more interesting. Not only is the reference to jazz music cool, there’s the idea of riffing within a structure. ...collaborating with a group...fill in the blank here. Personally, I’ve always associated jazz with architecture or an urban environment. Not the wait in line, traffic, dirty, stinky qualities of urban life...but the conglomeration of lots of creative people in one space. The excitement of folks on the move. The diversity of many cultures. ..So I choose improvisational. ~ We Take Our Minds With Us, 24"x36"x2", acrylic, Dura-Lar on cradled panel, 2016 copyright Mary Zeran, Private Collection, Cedar Rapids, IA​ SOLD * * * * * #paintingprocess #artcollection #featuredartist #colorfieldpainting #nonrepresentationalart #artfinder #abstractlandscape #acrylicpainting #art #arte #happyabstract #paintingwithatwist #paintingonpaper #contemporarypaint #contemporarypaintingartist #curators #askacurator #livingwithart #beautifulpeopleliveart #collagepainting #abstractcollage #contemporaryabstraction #abstractmag #artadvisory #artadvisoryservice #artconsulting #artandinteriors #newpainting #newartdealers #maryzeran at ALDI USA

There’s always something fascinating about flying over your home state. Suddenly you see familiar sites with different eyes. ~ Lake Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda, 24"x36"x2", acrylic, Dura-Lar on cradled panel, 2016 copyright Mary Zeran, ​Gilded Pear Gallery (319)366-0205 * * * * * * #paintingprocess #artcollection #featuredartist #colorfieldpainting #nonrepresentationalart #artfinder #abstractlandscape #acrylicpainting #art #arte #happyabstract #paintingwithatwist #paintingonpaper #contemporarypaint #contemporarypaintingartist #curators #askacurator #livingwithart #beautifulpeopleliveart #collagepainting #abstractcollage #contemporaryabstraction #abstractmag #artadvisory #artadvisoryservice #artconsulting #artandinteriors #newpainting #newartdealers #maryzeran at Cedar Rapids, Iowa

It’s been a while, but...welcome to my studio. One of the things I love about this space is the light. Even though it’s in a basement, there’s beautiful light from the south. Since the windows are at the ceiling, there’s plenty of wall space. The space has amazing storage and display space. It’s a long space divided into two sections. One for dry work (see here) and the other for wet (devoted to making a mess, ie painting, glueing, drying). I know you’re all thinking. It’s so tidy and organized. That’s because I’m super klutzy and hyper. All trip hazards have to be banished for safety reasons. I’ve shot a video tour of the space featured on stories. Hope you enjoy! Onward! Happy Day! * * * * * #paintingprocess #artcollection #featuredartist #ihavethisthingwithcolor #colorcrushcreative #artfinder #abstractlandscape #acrylicpainting #art #artiststudios #colorinspiration #paintingwithatwist #paintingonpaper #contemporarypaint #contemporarypaintingartist #curators #askacurator #liveartfully #beautifulpeopleliveart #collagepainting #abstractcollage #contemporaryabstraction #abstractmag #artadvisory #artadvisoryservice #artconsulting #artandinteriors #newpainting #newartdealers #maryzeran at Cedar Rapids, Iowa
