The inspiration for this piece came during a plein air trip to New Mexico. Judy was intrigued by the way the sunlight glinted off the brilliant orange rooftop and the contrast of the dark sky above. Beautiful color work throughout, capturing the light on the pavement, sidewalk and architecture. Telephone pole and trees at left and curvature of the sidewalk draw the eye back and create depth.

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.
