Gratitude Designs By Tara Dixon
Gratitude Designs by Tara Dixon is a company based on acknowledgement and gratitude. Tara Dixon is a painter from Brooklyn, NY who started a series of paintings in the Spring of 2010 with the words “thank you” inscribed into the final layer of wet paint. The colors she uses are vibrant jewel tones and the studies have an abstract landscape feel. Almost as if sky writing has taken place, the words “thank you” are etched into the top portion of the canvas. She sometimes uses collage elements such as shirting material and cloth calendar numbers along the horizon line. The paintings are meant to be reminders or mantras. The product line consists of reproductions of the original 12” x 12” canvases, greeting cards and gratitude journals.
The original paintings will be on display through Friday, August 12th at P.S. Books, 76 Front Street, Dumbo, Brooklyn. Artist reception at Speak Up, Wednesday, August 10th from 6:30pm.
