Forest City? A real place, yes; though I have never been there.  I once had a roommate from Forest City, NC, and I imagined what it might look like.  A city of trees upon trees, and the sunsets would be glorious, all sorts of colored light streaming through the branches. Here it is on canvas. If you like magical sunsets, enjoy the view! This painting is wired to hang, with the edges painted a light, warm gray.

Getting to Know Natalie

Natalie George has been an artist her entire life. A college semester in Italy introduced her to the tradition of realism. After mastering this classical style, she began to experiment with abstraction in her work. Natalie now paints heavily abstracted landscapes, combining unexpected colors to create interpretations of reflective bodies of water. Her work recalls both modernism and the gilded compositions of 20th Century Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. The artist’s process begins with visiting a location and shooting reference photographs, followed by sketches on paper, before finally turning to canvas. Natalie’s paintings reward the patient viewer, who will discover delicate horizon lines, trees, and fluid reflections within her hazy abstractions.
