This piece was inspired by the agapanthus blooming in the summer. The long outstretched stems and blue-violet blooms became my symbol for striving to one's potential. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Lisa

Based in California’s Central Valley, Lisa Manes-James is a retired art teacher whose work is inspired by her physical, sensory, and emotional connections to natural environments. Her non-objective paintings explore the essence of nature through color, organic shapes, and varied textures. Lisa works intuitively with brushes and tools, adding and removing paint according to her instincts. She paints in oil, a medium she finds to be sensuous and rich. For the artist, the experience of painting is a metaphor for the internal and external forces that shape the soul. Her ultimate intention is to cultivate an awareness of the relationship between the natural world and human emotions, experiences, and existence.
