Judy Crane

My work represents my view of the world as I choose to see it. I am fascinated with the play of light in nature, and in man's created environment, ever changing and refocusing one's attention. I strive to capture this fleeting reality in my work, and to impart my emotional reaction to it. In recent years I have concentrated on landscape painting in oil. I have traveled and painted on location in France, Italy, Spain, and several areas of the US. I do small works on site, recording the essence of the scene, the light, color, and atmosphere. I refer to these paintings, and to the photographs I have taken, when working on larger pieces in the studio. I am not trying to paint in a photo realistic way, as a camera sees, but instead as the eye sees. I am striving to capture a true sense of place, and my emotional reaction to it. I am pleased when people express a feeling of "being there" when viewing my work. In this fast paced age I am often struck with how little time people take to observe the world around them. I hope my paintings can help them focus and appreciate this world, and perhaps look a little more carefully and enjoy a little more.- Judy Crane
