"Blue Road at Dusk" was inspired by an experience I had painting in the Roman countryside. I had finished a painting and packed my gear into the van when the early evening light changed and the tracks of the dirt road turned blue. The edges of this painting are a soft butter yellow. The painting has been sealed with an invisible wax.
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.
