MAY ART PIECE OF THE MONTH
Amy Gessner Larson
Gift of Art Show at the Dog Show
One of the most difficult mediums with which to work is watercolor, yet Amy Larson has mastered it as seen in this light-filled painting of a pack of foxhounds enjoying their time together on fresh spring grass. Ms. Larson's work has been exhibited across the USA and in London. Of her passion for art she states: "The drive behind my art is not so much to paint how an animal looks, but rather to capture who they are in that fleeting moment...I hope my paintings can be a celebration of all life". This painting is currently on exhibit in our Cam Lyman Gallery.
