Trudy Oberg, Artist
Color is what I see first - before shape or size or object. I am drawn or repelled by color. I am thrilled by it and play with it. Everything I buy is carefully selected by color first, from Kleenex to cars.

As a child, I was a chemist of color, mixing them for hours in the garage, using small bottles of water and food coloring. Today I use tubes of paint and canvas. Now of course there are added elements such as balance and design. If you enjoy the excitement of pure color also, I know you will be attracted to my canvases of color, balance and harmony.
