Still Life Study with Lemon

"Still Life with Lemon"

What I'm noticing about how I paint is my desire to use really thick paint in the lightest parts of the painting and how I want to blur the edges around the subjects. I think it's because I really want to direct the viewers eyes to the light. I can't wait to use these techniques on figure painting someday

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.
