Join us for December First Friday’s featuring Mae Stoll and her show “Explorations in Acrylic and Soft Pastels”. She will also have prints and jewelry for sale just in time for the holidays!
The short time I’ve been painting has been an exploration, an exciting one down a road with many byways, and one that has changed how I look at the world. I don’t yet have a recognizable style, and I may never settle into one entirely, since I’m having too much fun at this stage. I am drawn almost equally to realistic representation and to attempting to capture only the mood or the feeling evoked by a scene, sometimes turning to one mode instinctively after spending a significant amount of time in the other. Whether I’m moving wetness around with a brush or being seduced by the powdery subtlety of soft pastels, it’s essentially color, with its myriad of possibilities, that continues to excite my soul.
