As an artist, I find myself inspired by the process of beginning with linen, oils, and brushes and watching as the combination of color, line, and value reveals the hidden beauty of the subject. My goals have been achieved when viewers feel connected to my work and share the enjoyment of being drawn into a painting's energy and beauty.
"16 X 20" Oil on Canvas SOLD "Night Blooming Beauty"
"My first inspiration came as I watched my grandmother begin to paint. What surprised everyone was that she was seventy years old and in no time at all became very good at it. On the wall just in front of my easel is one of her best paintings. It is a beautiful reminder of both her love for me and the artistic gift she left as a legacy. My beginning also came late in life however, I was much younger when I discovered that I loved to paint. It was thirty years after a career as a Pharmacist that I decided to retire and explore a more creative journey. It began with photography but one day as I stood looking at my grandmother's easel that all changed when I put down the camera and picked up a brush." -Terri Sullivan
