Judith Gilman Artist Statement

I love color and I love painting. My greatest hope is that the joy I feel while painting is reflected to the viewer of my interpretive landscapes, cityscapes, and florals. I try to abstract the essence of my subjects by focusing on shapes and playing with color.

I began painting in retirement when I was finally able to pursue the interests of my heart. After periods of dabbling in poetry writing and drama, I discovered my love of painting. I dove in, immersing myself in classes and studio time as well as reading and constantly talking about art.

My first step in creating a painting is looking for beauty in all types of scenes. I then capture my view of that beauty with the camera. Some of my scenes are discovered locally while others are found on road trips. With a print of the photo in hand for reference, I paint in my small studio.

I have enjoyed developing my unique style and learning how the paint "works." Although I feel I still have many steps to take on my journey through art, I am now ready to share my work with others. Please enjoy perusing my albums.
