Featured Artist: Laurel Daniel!

Cottage View by Laurel Daniel 12×9″ Oil

Laurel Daniel. A wonderful artist who paints both plein air (outdoors) and in her studio. Cottage View is a plein air piece. This painting is full of charm and character. Laurel captured the cottage beautifully. I love the tinges of blue on the shutters, and what a magnificent tree growing over the house! Such a wonderful vibe from this painting and what a setting it is!

Read a bit about Laurel, from her website:

With a degree in studio art and 19 years in the graphic design business, Laurel now paints full-time and teaches at The Contemporary Austin Art School. She is an avid plein air painter and says, “Plein air painting is a huge part of my process – it feeds, motivates, and is the source for studio work. It is an excuse to be outside, experiencing nature firsthand. The whole process is irresistible to me.”
My lifelong love for nature inspires me to contemplate the landscape. As a plein air painter, I begin outside, working quickly to discern the shifting patterns of shadows and light. Back in studio, I try to paint with the same closely-observed spontaneity. Capturing a moment in time is an impossible task, but for me, an endlessly compelling one.
