In this painting I have my model in a formal gown. She is sitting in front of a window, calm and quiet. She has an open and youthful expression. But what is she waiting for? Waiting for a dance, or an event of some sort? Or being so close to becoming an adult, is she waiting for life to truly begin? It really is open to one's own interpretation. This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.

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.
