This painting is painted using a "high key" palette, meaning even the darkest colors on the painting still lean towards the lighter. It makes for a soft, easy on the eye, composition. Calm and in cool tones it creates a feeling of relaxation and restfulness. Still, with bits of abstraction to intensify the dreamlike quality.

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.
