"Indoor Tangled Garden" was selected into the 2020 KSOA Window Gallery juried show, July 3-28/20.
Acrylic - framed 26X32 $650
Painted in the Spirit of the Group of Seven. 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the group of seven and this painting was inspired by J.E.H. MacDonald's " The Tangled Garden."
Painted in early Spring during COVID 19 and not having access to the outdoors, I gathered all my indoor plants and grouped them together. I worked directly from the set up adding the little Blue Bird carved by my mother at the end.
Belia van Essen Brandow
A contemporary realist painter, I paint for the sheer pleasure and enjoyment I receive from the entire process. Viewed through an artist’s eye, I determine what has inspired me and what I want to convey and then decide how I am going to convey this using design, colour, light, mood, shape and size. My primary goal is to connect with the viewer and to share with them why I was inspired to paint this picture. I am always striving to improve my skills. This is a lifelong process and each painting becomes another challenge as I continue to evolve and develop my unique style.
