My style is rather impressionistic. I am not concerned with making my scenes look absolutely real. The emotions I lay down on canvas when I’m painting and the feeling they evoke is more important to me. I’ve always loved Colorado and consider painting in the West a great inspiration and privilege, as well as a challenge and adventure. Anything that inspires me is a possibility for a painting. I like to keep my compositions simple and emotionally drawn.
I am especially attracted to the mood and atmosphere about me when I’m painting outdoors. I search for contrasts of cloud and landscape, of light and shadow–the unique color palate composed of the ever changing light. I often feel I have become absorbed in the environment. For a painter there is nothing better than sharing my experience with others and seeing their reaction to my art.” ~ Janice Sugg
