Secret Garden

My goal in this painting was to create a dream or memory like painting. To do this I used fractured light. I also explored creating 2 and 3 dimensional form in the same space. I blurred and eliminated edges to keep this painting soft and dream like. I really liked how this came out and I'm enjoying the different direction my artwork is seeming to take. Thanks for looking!

About Lori Farist

 Artist Statement:

Ultimately my goal as an artist is to invoke emotion from the viewer. To do this my focus is on simplifying shapes, colors, and light so that I don't get bogged down on the perfection of details but to concentrate on the information that stirs the soul. Consequently my art is a balance between expressionism and realism.
