The Riverwalk

"Riverwalk, Owego NY"

Since I don't have much of a chance to paint outdoors, I try to paint quickly to keep the spontaneity in my paintings. I am trying to simplify shapes and colors to gain as much information as possible. This practice allows me to sharpen my skills in attaining information quickly without getting lost in the details. I like this painting because of the simplicity and how that led it to a quiet peaceful setting. 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.
