This piece features a palette that is soft and muted neutral shades. The exuberant brush strokes remind me of the thick, almost impassable hillsides of Homer, Alaska where I created this painting. If one looked closely in these thickets, a family of moose might be seen snuggled in for a chilly spring night. This piece creates a sense of coziness and intimacy which is why I titled it "Shelter."

Getting to Know Peg

Peg Belcastro paints non-objective expressionist pieces using vivid colors and energetic lines. She is inspired by the lush forests and valleys that surround her home in rural Pennsylvania, as well as by the vibrant Alaskan wilderness where she paints every summer. Working intuitively as she paints, she responds to each gestural brushstroke with the next one, allowing every painting to follow its own path to completion. Peg enjoys the elements of surprise in her art, and she hopes that her work will be appreciated for the process as well as for the finished piece.
