I have always found artistic inspiration in nature. I enjoy experiencing the beauty and peacefulness of the natural world and then creating impressionistic pastel paintings of land, water, and sky.
This painting is a little bit of a departure from my usual style. Earlier this year, my husband, a musician, “commissioned” me to create a vibrant painting for the cover of his new album, and so I was inspired to look at my usual subject matter and style and then do exactly what the theme of this exhibition asks – to Reimagine, Explore, and Discover how I could provide a colorful painting that’s brighter and more imaginative. I created Radiance 2 at the beginning of this experimentation and exploration – taking a seascape subject and using brighter and different colors than I normally might use. I enjoyed getting out of my comfort zone and being bolder, while still feeling like this was recognizable as my work. (To match the feeling of the music, I ended up venturing much further from my usual style for the final cover art!)
