Artist Janet Dyer visits Harriman State Park throughout the year for inspiration for her impressionist paintings. "I was struck by the geometric shape of pink-orange in the middle of the lake," she says of this gentle sunset. Painterly brushwork conveys the immediacy of the scene and the fast changing light.

Janet Dyer doesn’t like to spend too much time talking about her art, as she’d rather be creating it. She doesn’t have an artist statement, the traditional statement of purpose crafted by visual artists to explain their method. On becoming an artist, Janet simply states, “I picked up some crayons and pencils and brushes and kept using them.” She believes the process of creating art is equal in importance to the final product. The artist enjoys relinquishing control of her paintings to find delightful surprises in her so-called “mistakes.” Janet's expressively gestural yet bucolic landscapes are a testament to the success of her method.
