Can you spot the visitor to my garden?  I think she is thinking of making a home for her family.  I loved how the light was shining through the leaves and petals the day I painted this.  This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges.  It comes 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.
