home Gretchen Greene, fine art paintings and collage


Open Field

I draw inspiration for my oil and acrylic paintings from urban and rural landscape, figurative and non-objective themes, and the passage of life and time.

Departing from realism to reflect the richness, depth and illusion reminiscent of early California Impressionists, I use color, the play of light and shadow, texture and contrast to create a spontaneous environment alive with color, fantasy and drama. Using painterly, forceful brush strokes, splashes and scribbles, bold forms and edges that define and diffuse, I invite the viewer onto the surface to share in my world.
