Sometimes I paint objects that I think are "pretty." China, flowers, ribbons. Soft colors. It still needs a nice design. A center of interest.  It has to stay real. But sometimes I feel it's okay to really focus on "pretty."

Getting to Know Lisa

There’s a certain innocent joy that comes through in Lisa Nielsen’s artwork. She finds beauty in the everyday and often ordinary, whether it’s painting a pretty girl in the garden or spending time with her daughter at Chipotle - and let’s face it, what isn’t beautiful about a burrito bowl? Lisa likes to say she captures moments in the journey of life. What we see in her art is all part of her life philosophy: to be still, to breathe, to exhaust the small moment.
