Jeanie & Christina's Door, M. Gilbertsen, abstract oil on wood bi-fold door, 2009

This work was commissioned for a couple living in the Queen Anne area of Seattle. It’s the door to their pantry off the kitchen. I loved playing with the shapes and limiting my colors but seeing how many color combinations I could come up with. It was like a great big puzzle. And the oil paint is absolutely delicous…it’s like painting with…butter. Ummmm, good paint, a little Ella Fitgerald, and bam! You’re having a good time!
