This painting was inspired by the sun coming up on the trees behind a lake, that special morning light made even more beautiful by water. I wanted to name it Saturday Morning at the Lake, but I didn't want to suggest too much to the viewer, but rather allow them to see for themselves what it was.  The work is a composition in corals and blues, with creamy white. 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished taupe edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Natalie

Natalie George has been an artist her entire life. A college semester in Italy introduced her to the tradition of realism. After mastering this classical style, she began to experiment with abstraction in her work. Natalie now paints heavily abstracted landscapes, combining unexpected colors to create interpretations of reflective bodies of water. Her work recalls both modernism and the gilded compositions of 20th Century Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. The artist’s process begins with visiting a location and shooting reference photographs, followed by sketches on paper, before finally turning to canvas. Natalie’s paintings reward the patient viewer, who will discover delicate horizon lines, trees, and fluid reflections within her hazy abstractions.
