The “Pink Houses” painting is loosely based off of a photo of an island in Iceland. The florescent pink paint and a loose sketch were used as the starting point. The rest was completed accordingly made up of many marks and brush strokes that don't connect but still result in a cohesive image.
This painting is based off an old found image of Pushthrough, a town on Newfoundland's south coast which has been an inspiration for many paintings by the artist. The grid is used as a tool to transfer the image onto the canvas and is emphasized for visual interest which is becoming a signature style in Margaret Louise's work.
