"Morning Awakens the Grove" captures the moment when the sun has just reached high enough on the horizon for rays of light to reach out and illuminate the edges of trees and grasses.
This is an oil painting on a deep wooden panel. The side edges are painted in a discreet dark green. It has been sealed with an invisible wax for its protection.
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.
