Outside My Window by Holly Van Hart  24×30″  Oil

Holly Van Hart paints abstract nature paintings. They are quite lovely. Her forest series shows such dimension, and some of the paintings are quite large, which I think adds to the uniqueness… Outside my Window (above) is a sweet painting with a soothing color palette, beautiful… see, Spring is just around the corner!

Read a bit about Holly’s painting process, from her website:

“Each day in my studio is an exciting and on-the-edge exploration of ideas, feelings, subjects, paints, textures, and colors. When starting a painting, I know what I want to convey and have a general idea of what the finished work will look like. Each painting is a journey, requiring many layers of paints, and much inspection and introspection over a period of months.

Typically, I paint subjects found in nature and abstract them with unusual colors and unexpected textures. Using multiple photo references, I sketch the composition onto a blank canvas. Then I build up the painting using 5-10 layers of paint, waiting days or weeks between each layer for the paint to dry. The layers are critical to achieving desired colors and textures, and they give the painting a special glow.

The unusual colors and textures in my work are meant to help us see nature in new ways and with new wonder.

When a painting might be finished, I ask myself ‘Is this a museum-quality painting?’ The finished work rarely looks exactly like what I first envisioned. But by the time it is done, I have learned a tremendous amount about the subject and myself, and have earned the satisfaction of creating a unique piece of art.” Read more HERE
