Spring Thaw on the Ausable River pastel 8"x10" 2013
Fresh Greens pastel 9"x12"
Christine Sargent recommends the work of Takeyce Walter for our spring theme, and has this to say about her work:
Takeyce Walter is truly inspired by the landscape, and this is ever apparent when standing before any of her paintings. Walter’s paintings, both large and small, present the landscape of the northeast in all its glory. There is a great sense of calm, peace, and stillness in each piece.Thank you Christine!
Many of the paintings feature the rural landscape of upstate New York, the Adirondacks, and Vermont. Walter is especially inspired by the Hudson, Mohawk and Ausable rivers.
Takeyce Walter is a painter whose return to painting in 2005 has been documented on a self-published blog, aptly named Takeyce Walter: A Fine Art Blog. She initially made a commitment to finish at least one painting a week, and started blogging to help track her progress. Many years later, Takeyce has maintained that commitment and is currently producing art on a regular basis. Her work is emerging, and pouring forth in these prolific years.
The month of March is dedicated to the theme of spring. Have some favorite paintings of the season of spring by other artists you'd like to share?
