Debbie Harding, Love in a Mist, 2011, pastel, 18 x 24.
My paintings are colorful and full of light. I achieve drama, in part, through the juxtaposition of darks and shadows against the lighter values, with highlights, very carefully placed, at the very end of the painting process. I am a very visual person, and am so moved by what I see. I notice, and am affected by the beauty and design in creation. I am easily awed, as I find so many things of interest around me. I've always been that way, so painting for me is a natural product of a lifetime of feeling inspired.
