This work is inspired by a style of abstract painting that emerged in New York City during the 1940s and 1950s. Influenced by European Modernism and closely related to Abstract Expressionism, "Color Field" is characterized primarily by large fields of flat, solid color spread across or stained into the canvas creating areas of unbroken surface and a flat picture plane. In color field painting, color becomes content.

"Custom art can be an expression of who we are, what we are feeling and how we look at the world around us."
"Designer Suzanne Tullock was able to hang a custom abstract painting by local artist Sheppard Morose above the fireplace. It’s one of the first things you see,Tullock says, describing the piece as feminine and stunning."
