This is a small impressionistic summer landscape that captures fast moving billowy clouds and trees and grasses swaying in the breeze. The painting was made on canvas-covered hardboard and has been mounted on a cradled wooden support.  The side edges have been painted in a dark green-black to allow the soothing blue and green colors to take center stage.  The piece has been wired and is ready to hang.

Getting to Know Elizabeth

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.
