I paint landscapes in watercolor.
I have a couple of favorite subjects.
One is the sense of a particular ecosystem or plant community. I want to be able to remember the sound of the insects buzzing in the beach dunes, or make you imagine the coolth of the air sifting down a shaded hillside in a northern forest.
My other main interest is structures in their setting — a town or rural village. I’m especially interested in the spaces between buildings.
I’ve also painted a few house portraits for friends and clients. Right now I’d like to do more work on commission, since I just left a “real” job due to coronavirus concerns.
I hope you enjoy these paintings!
Update from Betsy:
I am is available to take commissions for art. I specialize in house portraits, but if you would like a different subject, let me know and I may be able to do something a little different for you. I would love to do some art for you!
Previously I have mostly done commissions for friends and neighbors, so bear with me as I start to scale up — this feels like a good moment for it.
My email for commissions is BetsyMakesArtForYou at the google email place.
