About Anna's Art & Art Gallery

The Art of Oil Painting

As a painting artist, I explore color and form by using encaustic, pastel or oil paint mediums. Custom pet portraits are in pastel or oil. The unique properties of each medium produces uniquely different visual imagery. I enjoy blending reflecting hues for realistic renderings. My website of gallery art offers my original paintings and their art reproductions produced by the Giclee process in the finest inks available.

The Art of Pastel Painting

Plein air painting with the pastel medium lends the ability to capture both soft and vivid hues of landscapes, exactly as they appear at any given moment.  Labor Day 2016 perfectly describes the beach at Stone Harbor  as it was that weekend.  The colors in the scene were chosen by physically comparing  the pigment of the pastel sticks to the color of the beach, water and sky, thus capturing the atmosphere that was simultaneously bright and overcast.

The Art of Encaustic Painting

Encaustic painting, the fusing of layer upon layer of hot melted colored wax, can often result in various interpretations of the artist's work.  A three dimensional opulence is created with a textured, sculpted or smooth finish.   In my experience, encaustic painting is by far the most versatile art medium.  It offers endless possibilities for creativity.  Hydrangea is a beautiful example.
