I put on layers of paint to create just the right effects I desired for "The Red Head". The model's fiery hair color always inspires me! This piece is on masonite board and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Tricia

Drawing her inspiration from the outdoors, Tricia May describes her paintings as “impressionistic with a contemporary flair.” Her early work focused on the figure, but after moving to Idaho in 1992, she became fascinated with capturing the landscape. She is a founding member of the Plein Air Painters of Idaho, and enjoys painting on location, in the sunshine, whenever possible. Tricia’s love of being outside has rendered her quite prolific–her current “Tree” series numbers more than 400 paintings and counting. “I plan my paintings ahead using sketches, a value pattern, and color choices,” says the artist. “Then I allow intuition and spontaneity to take over, enjoying the process.”
