Oil by Marie Massey.

Focusing on Beauty: My paintings start with a sense of fascination and inquiry; what is unique and beautiful about a scene or subject?  

My challenge is to capture and communicate that special beauty with paint. Sometimes the idea for a painting spontaneously presents itself as in plain air painting.

I am inspired by the quiet meandering of a river, the vastness of a desert gorge or the way afternoon sun highlights the curve of an arch or the angle of a roof top. Sometimes my paintings are inspired by many impressions and feelings of a place.  

These paintings are all about using technique to express relationships, to create a sense of distance, time and space.
