Art Fx is a year-long series on Huntsville Doppler featuring Huntsville-area visual artists.
“Warm Winter Day” is a 9″x12″ oil on birch panel of a lake in Algonquin Park.
“I love painting winter scenes because of the intensity of the blue shadows on sunlit warm snow,” says artist, Terri Howell. “This scene could be anywhere in Algonquin or on any Muskoka lake with untouched shoreline. I try to find scenes like this for their universal appeal. We can all relate to a warm, spring-like day in February.”
About the artist:
“I learned to love painting in kindergarten. It was my absolute favourite activity,” says Terri. “I discovered it again in retirement. I plein art paint with a group of artists, paint from reference in my studio, and still take lessons from my mentor, Janine Marson.”
Terri’s work has been shown and sold at Huntsville Art Society shows at the Algonquin Theatre and at the August Artists of the Limberlost studio tour.
“There’s nothing quite so relaxing and invigorating as pushing buttery oil paint across a canvas with a big brush,” she adds.
Terri has a little studio in Raymond, not far from Utterson.
