I live in a building on a high bluff overlooking a city and a river. It is a perfect view with images of large barges, cruisers, sail boats, jet skiers, and kayaks. This highly textured acrylic painting is inspired by this view of the bluff. Metallic colors of gold and copper, silver and bronze capture the feeling of a shimmering sunset. The painting suggests a softness of atmosphere and an impression of serenity.
Brenda Buffett is inspired by the dynamism in one of America’s fastest growing cities. Her bright abstract cityscapes capture a moment in time in the ever-changing urban landscape of Nashville. “The signature of this community is action and change… I hope my paintings capture a constant movement, like the energy of the turnaround in SoBro,” she explains. From her living room studio overlooking downtown Nashville, she may start with cathartic printed messages on the canvas and then use credit cards, a potato masher, eye patches, chopsticks, and feathers to build up layers in her signature style. Throughout her body of work, there are details alluding to the Nashville music scene, food, architecture and nature that invite a closer look. Brenda studied Interior Design at Belmont University, and her art is featured in the Mayor of Nashville's collection as well as a Bravo TV design show, solo shows and private collections.
