"After the Gold Rush" glows in rich amber tones evoking late Autumn. This horizontal landscape features a sky bursting with warm dramatic clouds reflected in a lake edged with a soft tree line. Painted in transparent layers oil on canvas, the edges of the canvas are deep burnt sienna.
Growing up in California and Colorado, Elizabeth spent much of her formative years outdoors. “Exposure to nature early on planted the seed of landscape painting in me,” she says. She enjoyed spending time on her grandfather’s sunny sheep ranch and going to the beach with her grandmother. Her grandmother also would bring her to art galleries in Laguna Beach, where she was first introduced to California Impressionism. Today, Elizabeth lives in Tennessee and enjoys painting both outdoors and in her studio, a detached garage at her home. She has a keen interest in working with color and capturing the effects of light.
