Part of our journey and part of our path is waiting to be uncovered and unveiled. We just have to keep moving forward. This was the motivation behind this painting. Taking steps forward, even when we feel like there is a fog around us, there is beauty and discovery waiting to be uncovered. This painting really illuminates when it has a picture light above it.
“My passion is to create images that illicit a memory, a place, a time, a moment, a melody or even an unmet desire. The goal is that when someone views one of my pieces it engenders thoughts of a place in which that person would want to live…home. When a viewer comments on one of my paintings saying, ‘I want to live in that place. . .I want to live there,’ I know that what needed to be accomplished in this outward form of expression indeed was.”
Ellis uses many layers of paint in her work resulting in a rich, dense, surface with a dreamlike appearance. Enchanting in its simplicity, Ellis endeavors to create a world where grace transforms reality into an inviting and peaceful environment. By combining light subtle tones with intense color variations Ellis imbues her work with depth and a mystical quality.
My name is Blue Bonnie Elisha Ellis. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. Ellis is an American painter, she was born and raised in West Texas. She is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin. After graduation Ellis has lived and worked in New Mexico, Minnesota, and Los Angeles. Ellis studied and has taught fine art in her home state of Texas and continues to return to her roots for inspiration and to further her craft. “My process is incredibly organic. Each piece takes on a life of its own and embodies its own atmosphere. I use oil paint and multiple layers which makes every piece a practice of patience.”
