February 2016 Featured Artist: Jill Poyerd
As an artist, I am drawn to scenes from nature, whether as stand-alone landscapes or as backdrops for my figure work. I like to balance loose flowing color with selectively chosen details and, as in portrait work, I like to emphasize specific elements while letting the background effectively create the ambiance or emotional tone of the subject.
Whatever painting medium I choose, nature is my artistic example: the colors never conflict, the lighting is never “off,” and patterns are almost never predictable. As Michelangelo so aptly put it, ‘Only God creates. The rest of us just copy.’
