Dawn Dohl PaintingsMixed Media

As a child, I loved to collect assorted flower petals, leaves, and sticks and arrange them into pretty patterns in the shaded dirt under my mother’s lilac bushes. Those moments of playful creativity gave me so much joy, and I spent a lot of time creating the perfect designs, which I called my ‘petal paintings’. Now, my medium is predominately oil paint, but I still feel that exuberant playfulness while painting; and my imagery still reflects the organic nature and improvisation of my childhood ‘petal paintings’.
