Sometimes the deer are easy to spot in the field by my house.  Sometimes they catch me watching them and disappear at the woods' edge.  The wrapped sides have been painted a dark neutral color and the piece is ready to hang.

Getting to Know Pandalana

Before approaching the canvas, Pandalana Williams uses her vivid imagination to picture her subject in her mind's eye. While envisioning what she wants to paint, she imagines herself seeing it from all angles or playing it in her head like a movie. She especially enjoys painting from life, either from a still life she sets up or from plein air painting. It is not just an object to me, or just a place, but something that has created an emotion, she explains. When she paints, she enjoys listening to chamber or classical music. Normally, she spends about four hours a day in the studio but also enjoys taking walks in the woods with binoculars in tow.
