Painting and Sculpture by Donna Ball

Donna Ball - Embryonic Seashell, 2006
acrylic on canvas - 36 x 36 x 3 inches

The design for this painting originated from the carved clay ocean bones piece. The abstracted section's lines and shapes appealed to me and I wondered how it would look in a different medium with bright rich color replacing the earthy clay.

A design project turns into a series of abstracts, just to see where it goes...

Donna Ball - Venice Birds of Paradise 2 - Series
acrylic on canvas - 24 x 24 x 3 inches
Private Collection

Paintings from a series of color photographic prints, Venice Beach, California location. The light glistening on the sap, oozing down the purple pods, contrasting textures, and tropical colors captured my eye.

Donna Ball - Ocean Bones, 2001
Carved clay slab - 12 x 20 inches

A group of weathered seashells from Sullivan's Island, S. C., a previous home and life, provide endless possibilities with shadows and shapes. In baskets, jars and lying around my studio for inspiration and reference material.



Donna Ball - General Surplus & Supply
mixed media casting
12 x 19 inches

The actual name of my grandfather's aircraft surplus and supply company after the depression. It was my childhood Disneyland. I like the texture of hardware, metal surfaces. The older and rustier the patina, the more interesting.
