"Path Beside the Lake" captures the feeling of a crisp, breezy Autumn afternoon on a path around a lake. The near trees have a few golden leaves clinging to their branches. In the background we see warm red orange foliage in the woods. The edges of the canvas have been painted dark blue-black. This oil painting has been sealed with an invisible wax which protects it and adds a subtle luminosity.
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.
