Laura Browning is a Bay Area oil painter who is deeply inspired by all aspects of water. She paints light as it refracts off the rippled surfaces of water. Each piece captures the rhythm, movement, and feeling of water. Laura creates her aquatic scenes using many layers of transparent oil glazes and a fluid blending of color. Though her subject matter is the same, each painting has a remarkably different pattern and color palette. By studying the subtle nature of water, she works to conveys water’s intriguing versatility.

About The Artist
Growing up in California, I have long been inspired by the nostalgic idea of the classic California dream from the mid-20th century. This concept has become abstracted a bit as I have moved from painting objects and architecture and into capturing the essence of light in water, but the feeling they evoke are still very much reminiscent of a sunny summer day. Each piece is directly inspired by a particular experience, and is for me a vivid memory of the moment of inspiration. I feel the most alive when exploring new places, and as a result my work is a direct reflection of the moments when life is at it’s best.
Creating these water paintings is very meditative. I get lost in the process, just as I get lost watching light interact with water.
