"The Painter of Paint" - New Work by Louise Thies

  • Hawthorn Galleries 214 East Walnut Street Springfield, MO, 65806 United States (map)

"My subjects are diverse - landscape, still life, and portraiture, usually executed en plein aire, from life or at the very least, studio works aided by those studies. Always, I try to evoke an emotional response from the viewer akin to my own when I first came upon the scene, or when I set up the still life. Often, I'll aim for a hint of a story in the painting, one which causes speculation from the viewer.

I've painted most of my life, studied with many wonderful artists and made lifelong friends with a few. I would hate to limit myself to one type of subject, as I'm sure my work would suffer and stagnate, let alone drive me insane. My artistic journey will never be complete, for I constantly learn something new. I love this life of an artist."
