Ready to Hang
I created this piece a few years ago as a beginning to my minimalist landscape series. I continue now to paint more and more in this way despite occasional detours into watercolor and floral still lives.
This is painted in oils and is even painted on the sides so no frame is needed.
I was inspired to paint this piece by the rural areas I have loved in Northern California. I aim for a calm space within my paintings.
I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
