Sally Anger paintings acheive interesting effects with interference colors

Coastal Carolina paintings at Carolina Creations by Sally Anger depict the beauty of our area. 
Artists Statement
The beauty that surrounds me everyday motivates me to paint. I realize that I fall in line behind a long tradition of painters who have been likewise compelled. From the blues and golds of Vincent's wheat fields to the soft elegance of Georgia's blooms, I am in good company. As the poet Rumi mused:

“Let the beauty you love be what you do. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.”

Sally Anger grew up in the coastal town of Beaufort North Carolina after moving there at the age of nine. She has loved art all her life, and attended workshops and painted for many years. In 2002 she took the plunge and left a career as a nutritionist to pursue art full time.

She obtained her associate's degree in fine arts from the local community college and then studied for several semesters at a local university's art school before heading off on her own. She continues to explore new ways to express herself through art by experimentation, life drawing classes, critiques with other artists and workshops.

These three paintings are done with interference colors

What is an Interference Color?
An Interference color is laminated mica pigment that "flip-flops" from a main color to a weak complimentary one. The phenomenon is similar to naturally occurring light interferences such as gas or oil on water, or a butterfly wing. The position of the viewer and the direction of the light source create interesting visuals. In direct light, the main color, such as Interference Gold shines beautifully, but with indirect light, a translucent blue color appears.
