Dynamic, autumnal sunset in rich orange and yellow and subtle purple and blue. In the foreground, the landscape radiates the last warmth of the day. A small trail leads the eye back to the horizon. The painting has been sealed in an invisible wax that gives it a subtle luster, and the edges are finished in a deep burnt sienna/chocolate.
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.
