"River of Ghosts" captures light streaming in through the trees and shimmering on the surface of the river in a deep cypress forest. The painting is oil on a museum quality stretched canvas. The edges of the canvas are painted a dark green-black. The painting has been sealed for protection with an invisible wax and is ready to hang.
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.
