Lance Anderson's art is strongly influenced by his work in the film industry as a special effects make-up artist. He draws his inspiration from a combination of childhood memories, classic black and white films of the thirties and forties and his observations on the many movie sets he has worked on.
"Often in my paintings, I aim to illuminate the human connection with nature, especially a surfers call to the water. I want to capture the coastal creature in their element; playful, contemplative and immersed in the great beauty of the Pacific Ocean. The subject matter can be described as esoteric, but I think it can speak to that place of joy we all feel inside when we know, in that moment, we are grateful to be here."
Ms. Carr's work reflects her reverence for growing things and the magic of natural phenomena. Her abstract paintings boldly depict nature at her wildest and most exciting -- a feast of color.
Lanna Duncan is an artist who enjoys her life in both west Texas and southern California. Her oil and pastel painting is inspired by God's gift of beauty in both of these places.
I paint scenes depicting the beautiful environment and the ways in which we enjoy it. I donate a portion of sales proceeds to wildlife and domestic animal rescue and local environmental conservation groups.
Water is her calling and an oil brush is never far from her reach. The visceral impact of the creatures and seaweed washed up in her canvas, transports you to the ocean’s paths.
The creative process begins with collecting materials from her long walks on the beaches. She artfully places them together so that the onlooker has a visual story that is pleasing to the eye and evokes the essence of sea life and nature. After taking several pictures for reference she is ready to begin her inspirational paintings.
Lori’s work is inspired by the nude body, the human heart, and nature of Southern California. Lori can be found with her portable easel and paints at the seashore, the mountains, and the Malibu Farmer’s Market.
There's a quite vibration and unexpected beauty in commonplace elements found in the urban environment. My work describes this in an atmospheric and dreamlike, yet familiar, manner.
