Daydream

Hug Me Too

Presented here are six individual works by artist Donna Pidlubny that employ many of the same methods of painting for which she is best known. Now working digitally, she transfers her sketches into the computer, which is now her canvas. She creates her own brushes and applies soft colors in the same manner she would with a more traditional approach, layer upon layer, texture upon texture, one stroke at a time. Maintaining a precise balance and poise, her central images often interlock or overlap, and can perhaps be read as a cluster of feelings. Her carefully chosen hues of pale pinks, delicate greens, soft purples and muted blues combine to create a sense of translucency, while the relationship between her subjects and landscapes seem harmonious and natural. Finally, taking parts of her stories, ideas, or thoughts, she writes them out and then uses that text as highlights, shadows, and elements within the painting, so that the written word becomes the texture that binds the painting together.

After earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art, painting and drawing, from St. Cloud University, MN, Pidlubny did her post graduate work at Sheridan Institute, Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Working in both the commercial and fine arts, her illustrations have been published in editorial and advertising media, on products, and on book jackets. Her fine art paintings hang in private collections in both the United States and Canada. Selected achievements include the organization, preparation and supervision of an economic development presentation, which accompanied a trade delegation to Taiwan, establishing effective communication between two languages. The presentation won an award in international literature from the Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO). Her work has also won an award from the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) for best original illustration in advertising.
