This oil painting on stretched canvas is of a warm summer afternoon. The clouds in the clear bright sky are in motion. The meadow is painted in lush colors. The sides of the canvas have been painted a dark green. The painting is sealed with a wax which is invisible, but protects the painting. It comes 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.
