painting of a woman

MEMBER PROFILE: Nancy McCarra

Nancy's paintings are filled with the luminosity of light and the brilliance of color. She works from life, en plein air, usually returning to the same painting at the same time and conditions of the day until it is finished, whether she is painting a landscape or a still life set up or a model. 

"I am a color painter and strive to bring the beauty of the color and form in light to my paintings. Painting is a study of relationships; one color to another, warm and cool, light and shade. Painting is also an expression of what inspires me, whether it's a splash of sunlight striking a few branches of a tree,a dusty antique bottle casting a luminous shadow across a table top, or a face. Being an artist is a joyful journey, one which I pursue with passion, gratitude and dedication."
