Frances Wells: In View of the River
I have been fortunate to have lived on the Hudson since 1984 in South Nyack, Piermont, and now in Upper Nyack. Over all these years, I have witnessed countless dawn and dusk, the sun and moon rise with the slow and persistent movement of these bodies along the river with the change of seasons.
I see our river as an ever-changing work of art in itself. As a painter, I try to capture just a moment of its beauty with the hope that the viewer will be transported to a new place.
These are acrylic paints on light birch plywood painted in 2021, a pandemic year. They are all quite small, inviting the viewer to come closer and be more intimate with the work. But it is after all a virtual spectacle. If you would like to get closer and see these paintings “in person”, I welcome studio visits. You can email me ([email protected]) or text me or call me (845-521-0669) if you want to come. Hope you will.
