Liz Schiff and Lynette Porteous are long-time friends and watercolor artists. Liz is also a long-time monoprint artist.
These two artists showcase paintings that reflect their interpretations both of what they see and what they imagine.
Inspired by a recent trip to China where she purchased an assortment of calligraphy papers, Liz combines these Chinese papers with bird imagery in a series of mixed media monoprints entitled Flight to China. Liz uses a variety of textures and colors to create paintings that are often whimsical, often lyrical — each one with a different story to tell.
Lynette takes her inspiration from the world around her. This exhibit features her beautifully rendered watercolor landscapes. With a rich palette of exquisite color combinations, Lynette’s paintings infuse the viewer not only with a sense of place, but also with a sense of wonder.
