Gretha Lindwood

Media: pastel, oil

Artist’s Statement: When using soft pastel sticks, powdered pigments from the earth recompressed to fit my hand, I make my marks on the dry surface of sandpaper to record impressions of our natural world. If oil paints are my choice, I apply color on canvas to describe the landscapes that are the subject of my work. By painting en plein air in the outdoors and using an impressionistic touch, my landscapes invite the viewer into the scene. Crisp, refreshing and vivid are words that have been used to describe my paintings. The use of vibrant color and strong design are hallmarks of my work which I developed during my career as an illustrator and graphic designer. As a resident of the Pacific Northwest. I cherish our unique landscapes honed by water and time, and delight in capturing their beauty in the lush colors of pastels or oils to share with the viewer.
