This imagined landscape was based around a color, purple, and a mood, serene. The sky feels like a warm blanket at the end of a day, covering, protecting as the viewer drifts off to sleep. This painting is on cradled wood panel with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Nicole

Nicole Ryan paints imagined landscapes, but surprisingly, she’s not all that interested in landscape paintings. Rather, she is interested in the concept of memory. “My goal is to recreate a place I feel I was but can’t quite pinpoint,” she says. As memories move from reality to abstraction, it becomes easier to misremember things, or think they may have just been a dream. This hazy area is Nicole’s source of inspiration. She uses color to create ethereal landscapes that illustrate the purgatory between memory and imagination, the real and the unreal.
