This painting is about design. It has strong light and dark patterns, bold color, and spontaneous brushwork. The figure is mostly in silhouette which creates some mystery and allows the viewer to interpret what they are seeing. The flower in her hair adds whimsey and flair. A moment in time around that most engaging of subject matter, the figure.

Getting to Know Lisa

There’s a certain innocent joy that comes through in Lisa Nielsen’s artwork. She finds beauty in the everyday and often ordinary, whether it’s painting a pretty girl in the garden or spending time with her daughter at Chipotle - and let’s face it, what isn’t beautiful about a burrito bowl? Lisa likes to say she captures moments in the journey of life. What we see in her art is all part of her life philosophy: to be still, to breathe, to exhaust the small moment.
