Featured artist for July: Janice Burns
I am most often inspired by the visual images I experience. How I approach each piece of artwork varies, depending on what I wish to convey to the viewer. For this display I have selected pieces from two very different series. In “The Redwoods” I used muted colors with ink and focused on the details and textures found in the California coastal redwood groves. Transparent watercolors combined with gouache were used in the “Los Colores Maya” paintings, which were inspired by the richly colored hand-woven fabrics and handsome faces of the Mayan people seen while traveling through Central America.
