Today we’d like to introduce you to Sunny Goode.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Growing up in Atlanta, the third child of an art appreciating single mother I was company for her on many studio visits to area artist. These are some of my earlier memories, pictures in my head of large canvases leaning on walls in houses with drop cloths everywhere.
My art teacher at Westminster was most encouraging of my work, and his class was a healing place for me as my parents moved through their divorce.
Fash forward – I majored in art history at Hollins College, graduated, began a decorative painting business, married at 25 had three beautiful children, loved parenting, and found myself painting canvases to find solace and calm again. My own marriage of 24 years came to an end in 2017 as a result of (my husbands) addiction issues. Creating art has been my savior throughout my life.
Please tell us about your art.
I observe. I watch water dance in the sunlight, tree branches and leaves move in the wind. I observe color on birds, fish, and exotic animals and plants. The shapes of shadows and shapes of nature. These things inspire me the most. All lights all days, everything outside.
I want to capture this calm and serenity in my paintings for the viewers to get last for a moment in their own thoughts.
I want my paintings to bring a sense of strength and calm to the viewer.
Given everything that is going on in the world today, do you think the role of artists has changed? How do local, national, or international events and issues affect your art?
I’ve been inspired internally with new work that is rather a departure for me. It is pop art and campy and sends the message of love and evolve.
It is art with a message, words.
I think our world would benefit from a daily reminder to start all thoughts with LOVE and to the let LOVEvolve in your day.
I think art has always been influenced by the world, and today we need LOVE.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
