Diversity by Madeline Shcooley. Madeline Shcooley started painting at the age of 9. She uses her faith in some of her work, re-creating biblical stories into paintings, using tri-color wire shapes on top of canvas. Madeline uses a curvi-linear black, sometimes white, line that is painted with a squeeze-bottle or brush. She really loves how the squeezed method allows the paint to spread and cause unexpected shapes inside and along-side the line, that becomes new shapes incorporated into the piece. She uses acrylic paint, usually in an opaque style, sometimes using metallics to fill-in as accents, giving some of my works the impression of stained-glass windows. I am also influenced by objects and shapes in nature, Lake Michigan, figure drawing, silk-painting and some abstract designs. Madeline Shcooley’s inspired by the famous artists, Picasso, Klimt and Matisses’ and echos of their styles often show-up in her works.
