Surfing is a way of life in California for many and a spectator sport for others. "Nothing represents the California Dream better than surfing - riding the waves and living in harmony with the beautiful beaches and ocean of the Golden State," says Tatyana. "The golden hour of an afternoon cast alluring light over this entire scene, surfers in relaxing conversation after riding the waves."
Fair Oaks, California
Artist Tatyana Fogarty displays the intricacies of nature with her impressionist landscapes of Central California's coast. Her interest in painting nature was born out of her admiration for the 19th-century Russian artist Ivan Aivazovsky's dramatic marine scenes. As a plein air artist, Tatyana finds an inspirational location, uses all of her senses to interpret a scene, and creates a study with oil on canvas. "I do not generally touch-up my plein air pieces, preferring to preserve the immediacy and honesty of painting on location." Fogarty enjoys listening to everything from Tchaikovsky to Creedence Clearwater Revival during her creative process. When she is not painting, you can find her at operas and ballets, traveling the world, or listening to audiobooks in her woodland studio. Tatyana's creations have been showcased at galleries in California, New York, and The Southwest Art Magazine. Fogarty is a Signature member of The American Impressionist Society.
