In this painting, as I often do, I'm thinking about color. The colors here are green, yellow, and purple. Think New Orleans colors, although I think of those in a slightly different shade. The green and purple are evident, but the yellow is found subtly in the skin tones of the model. The colors don't scream at you, but I think there is a harmony that ties the composition together.

This painting is on gallery wrapped linen with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

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.
