Corinne Humphreys bold whimsical paintings have many layers. At first glance, paintings in the Tao of Rudy series appear as simple, child-like images of her rescued dog and muse, Rudy. Upon closer inspection, one discovers deeper meaning with titles like Dont Be Afraid to Leave the Path, Find a Balance, Wake Up to Love, Take the Leap, and other universal themes that invite viewers to take a closer look and contemplate emotion, fears, success and joy. Her paintings draw people in says one collector. The message is so simple, but so big, like a lesson on how to live well, says another. Your paintings are so HAPPY, They really resonate with me, and They make me smile, are just some of the comments made by art lovers of all ages. The paintings in the Tao of Rudy series are also the illustrations for three, multiple award-winning childrens books: The Tao of Rudy; Shoot for the Moon, Lessons on Life from a Dog Named Rudy; and Wake Up to Love, Lessons on Friendship from a Dog Named Rudy. Corinnes books have been awarded a Bronze IPPY award for Most Outstanding Book Design, Honorable Mention for Book of the Year, Gelette-Burgess Motivational/Inspirational Award and a Gold Moonbeam Childrens Book Award, making them a perfect gift for young art lovers or as a companion piece to a painting or print. Corinne works mainly in acrylic on canvas, using bright, solid colors and clean lines. She also produces pieces in gouache, oil, watercolor sketches and mixed media. Her mixed media pieces incorporate old sheet music, maps, book titles, scrabble letters and other items that inform and shape her themes.
