Second Saturday Event July 11: Meet the Artists Joan North and Pat Gaska 10-2.
I am partial to the Impressionists, Claude Monet but also some of the artists who inspired the Impressionists, such as Turner or Rembrandt.
Seeing how light plays across surfaces of water or trees or how people look in various types of lighting situations has also inspired me.
Since I live in a beautiful area of the country there are plenty of scenes and activities to draw inspiration from. I tend toward spiritual subject matter which might be why I pay attention to light, atmospheric conditions and how colors reflect off surfaces.
