Thunder Ridge

Description

Of her work, Nancy Lindsay writes:"Creating art has been a life-long journey for me. As a child growing up in Nebraska, my father's drawings and my grandfather's woodcarvings inspired me.<br>"Over the years, the landscape has become my inspiration, whether it is the endless Nebraska horizon, the deep woodlands and river valleys of Iowa or the rugged Mediterranean coastline. I prefer to paint on location (en plein air) and complete a painting in one session (alla prima). One always makes friends with a painting easel; people, especially children are immediately drawn to it. I am an ambassador of art. Painting outside gives me the opportunity to inspire those who have never seen an artist at work.<br>"During the Iowa winter, I work in my studio on larger paintings and private and corporate commissions. I'm constantly experimenting with new texture, color palettes and subject matter. And love the challenge of a new project!"
