Lori Twiggs replied to Karen Barton's discussion 'Comments requested on unfinished background and foreground.' in the group Art Critique Gallery and Forum
"Hi Karen, This painting has a beautiful, almost eerie quality to it with the soft lighting.  I love that the background is soft and, as you put it, unfinished.  I think it gives more importance to the horse and cattle.   It…"

Profile Information

It was famous impressionists such as Monet and Pissaro that inspired me first. I tossed my tiny detail brushes and forced myself to larger canvases and looser brush strokes.  My intent was to simply and respectfully capture the essence of my subject in a painterly way.   

I pursued under-paintings and palette choices in landscapes which led to a study of trees and foliage.  For variety, I painted still life which evolved to a personal study of color theory.   

Experimenting with color, temperatures and values led to my discovery that a simple adjustment in either of these areas could change the mood dramatically. This revelation fueled my enthusiasm and coupled with my looser brush strokes a new personal painting style began to emerge.    

I tend to gravitate toward strong value contrasts with an obsessive need to push the limit in light and shadow.  My little diversion with still life grew into a series of mini paintings and a new focus genre -my current obsession.

My work is ever changing.  As stated by Bruce Barton,

“When you are through changing, you are through.”
