Artist Statement

painting by Shelly Burke
"Rock Cliff in Minden" - 27" x 40" - 2007 - Sold


Painting directly from nature “en plein air” is my responsive interpretation to the ever-changing characteristics of nature.

Rather than giving an accurate description of the subject matter before me - a sun-dappled garden with wafting tree shadows or the swirling patterns created by water reflections in a pond - I try to translate what I see into a dynamic painting that reflects my emotional reactions.
