2024/01/22(月)【広報協力】ココガーデンプロジェクト 九五の冬KocoGarden Project: Ninety Five Winters




KocoGarden announces that holds a solo exhibition for Loreen Frost.


I was looking on the internet for ideas to create greeting cards and came across a woman who was doing abstract watercolours, using salt and crushed saran wrap to manipulate colour variations and texture.
It was so fascinating that I decided to try it. My style of painting has always been realistic and very controlled, and sometimes miniature. This was a new experience for me to just let things happen, with something appearing that is one-of-a-kind and can’t be duplicated.
I like the anticipation and excitement of waiting for the paint to dry to see what has formed. The possibilities are endless, using different colour combinations and one of the techniques, or both on one painting. It feels like opening a gift!
When I look at them, I am amazed and feel so blessed and grateful to be still using my hands at 95 years of age to make/create things.
