Art Interest: Oil
Full Bio: I am an oil painter who loves painting scenes in the outdoors as well as in the studio from models, photos, or from my imagination. Painting in oil gives me a chance to play with color, light and value.
I begin each new piece by choosing composition, lighting and mood. My colors vary from bright and bold, to a more limited color palette. Atmosphere has a definite place in my work. I prefer to work quickly, incorporating layers to build texture. Exploring new subjects are a joy and challenge I relish.
I spend my summers on the Jersey Shore and especially love sailing. I live in Columbus, Ohio with my husband Walt and have two grown children – Mark and Dr. Devon Guenther. I work with a theater doing lighting, sound and stage design and I am a ski Instructor at Mad River Mountain, Oh. I am a member of the Dublin Area Art League, The Guild of Creative Art, Worthington Area Art League and the Ohio Plein Air Society.
