"As a female painter, I capture the power of nature and its' fleeting moments. I focus on the effects of dappled light, contrasting shadows, and overlapping textures. Reflections of light on water, shadows created by trees, and fallen leaves, as well as petals on contrasting surfaces inform my subject matter. I paint these fleeting moments, so they are noticed. In my seascapes and petal series, I use many layers of colorful paint and unique textures to capture my awe of nature. My creative process is fluid and organic, much like the content I explore. I work on multiple paintings simultaneously and articulate nature through loose, expressive brush strokes. The acrylic paint is applied directly to the canvas, without any underpainting or sketch below, and blended into many layers by adding white to create tonal variations of color. These layers create the effect of movement, light, and texture. Like the sounds of nature, the stroke of the brush on the canvas is soothing to me." - Megan
