Summer Song (2012)

Summer Song-7-12Enlarged










20×20 acrylic finger painting


My abstract paintings are created through the spontaneous application of paint with my fingers. This technique has enabled me to create a variety of textures and designs that I cannot achieve with a brush. Although I have spent most of my art career as a finger painting artist, I also use a very fine brush to create surreal landscapes. While these landscapes retain the dreamy feel of my abstracts, they incorporate more realistic details such as grass and flowers. The colors in my work are saturated, yet you'll find subtle variations in the hues. My paintings are not only known for their vibrant and profound colors, but also for their textures. People often report feeling both energized and calm while looking at my work. About the artist Naomi’s art has been seen in numerous venues in St. Louis since she began painting in 2009. Her work has also been shown in Lexington, Kentucky, Boston, Massachusetts, and Lyon, France. Naomi’s paintings can be found in private collections throughout United States and Europe. Naomi holds a Bachelor’s degree in History and Russian Areas Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has never received formal training as an artist, but she can trace her somewhat twisted path from ESL teacher, to political consultant, to website creator (just to name a few) to artist. Naomi is a native of St. Louis, Missouri, where she lives with her husband.

    Finger licking good.. that is amazing painting. I do find often that my fingers get dipped in while’s working very well. Beautiful paintings.


    • ” Finger licking good” LOL!!! Weirdly enough, I just can’t paint with a brush. It doesn’t feel right. I love the feel of the paint moving on the canvas. Thanks for your compliment. 🙂

        You don’t have to explain.. We all do in life what feels right for ourselves. So you feel good and you do it great. I have done few paintings mixed and always find my hand and fingers get involved some how.. I will try it with fingers only as you gave me great inspiration to try. At least there will be nothing to deep accidently in the tea.


      • I am so glad to have inspired yet another artist to try finger painting! 🙂 One word of advice-put some moisturizer on your hands before you paint. It makes it much easier to wash the paint off afterwards. Let me know how it goes. Naomi
