Session 3 1:30-2:30PM
Her means of expression are the traditional media of painting and drawing. In her watercolor paintings she utilizes its jewel-like depth of colors created with transparencies and glazes;her oilpaintings and acrylics are similar in the traditional technique of glazes over ground colors. These media offer her a warmth and sensuousness relating to Earth and humanity, allowing complexities of form to express reality. Grounded in the textures derived from the Abstract Expressionists, my work is inspired by the spirit of the landscape, its richness of form andcolor, textures and patterns of nature. She broadens her color experiences by painting “en plein air” and sketches of live animals enrich my work, as well. The presence of water in her paintings with its reflections and fluidity, its necessity for life, holds for her the symbolic reflection of spirituality and the Universe, much in the philosophical traditions of the Luminists.
