“Art is our memory of love. The most an artist can do through their work is say, let me show you what I have seen, what I have loved, and perhaps you will see it and love it too.”
Anne Bevan~American artist and author
This quote states perfectly how I feel about this work, why I put in the long hard hours painting from life. To share what I love and why I am drawn to the Michigan landscape through plein air painting. I am discovering new things about the land and about myself as an artist and look forward to the continued challenge of capturing the changing light...always the changing light!
With my Fine Art degree and a desire, I strive to make the most of this blessing from God to pursue the desire of my heart at this late stage in my life. With the support of my husband Don and mentoring from my friend and Master Pastlist William Hosner, I feel I'm in a fabulous place.
My education continues with workshops in landscape and figure as well as studying the work of the Masters. My work can be found at 3 Pines Studio in Cross Village and on my website: www.lpondpastels.com.
