Judy started this painting on location, inspired by a community church near her hometown, and later finished the artwork in her studio. The contrast of the red roofline in the midst of the lush greenery of the landscape captured her attention. "The serene and welcoming nature of the scene made it feel like a place of hope," says Judy. This piece is on a watercolor panel sealed with archival matte varnish, providing the look of natural watercolor without the need for glass in a frame.

Getting to Know Judy

For Judy Mudd, creating a work of art means much more than simply reproducing something she sees. “It is more than painting a subject, it is expressing a feeling,” she explains. Judy develops her paintings with thorough reconnaissance work. She goes out on photo shoots in a variety of atmospheric conditions, sketches outdoors, takes notes, and completes color and value studies. From there, back in the studio, she lets the paintbrush guide her. Outside of painting, Judy also leads watercolor workshops and runs a real estate business with her husband.
