Joe’s Collection – Naomi Brotherton
Matted 20 x 27
La Casa with Dry Rock Walls
14 x 21
In Mexico I was fascinated by the strong rock walls with no mortar to hold them together, a hand-craft which is fast becoming a lost art. I also became interested in the way light of the warm earth colors bounced up into the shadows.
Lilies That Float
17 x 23 Unframed
To capture the essence of the flower petals, I try to convey the fresh, soft and bright qualities of most flowers. The newspaper had a story with photos stating that a family had donated their collection of water lilies to the park department, and it was only a few blocks from where we were painting. It was my first chance to see them in living form – a new challenge.
