Featured Artist for May - Florence Setzer
The inspiration for my watercolors comes above all from a desire to capture and convey the beauty of the natural world. Landscapes have always been my first love, though I’m also drawn to close-up depictions of natural forms and the visual complexity of many architectural forms.
I find the contrast between soft organic forms or broken edges and rigid, rectilinear architectural structures especially intriguing. Distant cities often have natural beauty and tell a story of the context of human habitation. I enjoy painting outdoors, which is challenging but provides an immediate experience of outdoor subjects.
