To create and breathe life into an otherwise basic tube of paint and piece of cloth stretched between pieces of wood, to capture a fleeting moment in time with a piece of graphite or a scrumptious stick of pure pigment, to take a deep rooted thought or pain and express it for the universe to see and feel. Art.
I have been creating all my life. Whether it is a moment of laughter or tears or painting an interpretation of someoneï¿½s favorite vacation spot, pet, or loved one, mostly though ï¿½ special moments that have captured my attention due to its absurdity, color, magical moment or unexplained pain.
Canadian born and now residing in the beauty of Waldoboro, ME after residing in the warmth of Fresno for 33 years (with a brief stay in Massachusetts and Missouri), Valerie Greene has a passion for painting. Generations of artists branch from the family tree. Grandmother Wally was a painter and lived until 103 years young.
Valerie recently turned to a more impressionistic/expressionistic way to convey her art. Playing with different media to fit the mood through the years and turning to acrylic painted and layered over gesso to create a textured sort of surreal slash obscure representation of the subject.
ï¿½We are all creators as we all intertwine to make up this very moment. Enjoy Life!ï¿½
