Oil on Canvas
Prussian Blue, White and a touch of Payne’s Gray capture the late afternoon shadows at Beaver Ski Resort in Utah. Reference Photo by John William DeVilbiss. John’s exquisite photography is often the inspiration for my art pieces.
From pastel animal “portraits” in elementary school, to renderings of family and friends in oils today, my art journey has been a long and rewarding one. To capture not only a likeness but a sense of place or moment in time is a special feeling. I have appreciated the ability to learn from great teachers both in person and now via zoom, or YouTube webinars. Finding my own “voice” has been a challenge, but retirement and the pandemic have provided the opportunity to devote more time to developing my own style and has provided a creative outlet for maintaining sanity.
