I was inspired by a late afternoon walk along a path around the lake on the Warnecke Ranch in Northern California wine country. While I was the artist in residence at Chalk Hill Artist Residency I would take many walks around beautiful lake and surround vineyard landscape. On my walks I would take many photographs. I use those photographs as the memory and begin painting back in the studio.

The sides of the canvas are painted and the back is signed and dated with a wire for easy hanging. No framing necessary.

Victoria Veedell captures the essence of nature by examining the effects of light on form in the natural world. She has been painting the landscape in one form or another for over 20 years. Originally from Houston, TX she earned a BFA in painting from Texas A&M. The university years opened her eyes to the world of art. After graduating in 1990 she worked as a studio assistant for two prominent Houston Artists. In 1995 she was ready to move to New York to study at NYU. After studying painting for a year at the graduate level she decided to take a job in a contemporary art gallery to learn the business side of art. In 2001, after 7 years in New York, it was time to make a change. This time she moved with her boyfriend to Tokyo and spent 2 years exploring Japan and other parts of Asia. Finally settling in San Francisco in 2003. All the while no matter where she was she continued to paint and exhibit her work. She frequently attends artist in residence programs around the world. For her, attending these programs has become an integral part of her art practice. Her first residency was at the Vermont Studio Center in 2001. Followed by Chitraniketen Artist Residency in India, Kamiyama Artist Residency in Japan, Chalk Hill Artist Residency in Healdsburg, CA and currently Gullkistan Artist Residency, Iceland. The residencies provide an opportunity for travel and time to paint.
