Soft greys, soft purples with accents of lime and hints of red. The mood is serene and joyful. lovely neutral to go on any wall color. This is an original signed piece of art. Remember, there is always so much more detail and subtle color than a photograph can capture, so if you like it here you will love it in person. The sides are painted and this work is ready to hang in the frame less style, but a frame could be added.
Louise Baker is a painter working in oil and acrylic, known primarily for her thoughtful impressionistic compositions. Her paintings are characterized by a sensitive use of colour and dynamic brushstrokes: with her subjects sometimes dissolving in their pale environments in a flurry of unfocused strokes; sometimes jumping out of the canvas in contrasting bright colours with some judicious strong lines; but always capturing a mood, the quality of light, a season, a sensation. She earned a degree in design and visual communications from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Since her retirement as an art director, she has made painting a priority. Louise has taught workshops and accepts private commissions. Louise has been part of many juried group exhibitions as well as one woman shows. Her paintings are held in private collections throughout North America and Europe.
