Vibrant canola fields, powerful forests and delicate flower petals. She paints an Alberta sky like nobodies biz. When I look at Lorraine’s work I feel the comfort of my home. Like I’m driving out to a familiar place in the country, something from my childhood.
Then in contrast she does this lovely illustrative work on wood:
The neat-o part is that we’ve been friends for years and have helped each other through many of the ups and downs of self employed life. When you know the artist really well you see his/her personality radiate through every element and brushstroke. Its kind of a privledge in a way.
I hope this summer we’ll get the chance to drive some dusty country roads and draw old barns and horse pasture. (L, if your reading this, take a hint!)
Happy Monday, all.
