Cathy Jones' Sunflower Studio & Aspen Gallery
My paintings are inspired by the Impressionist painters of France and the Southwestern painters of the United States. As a result, you will find that my choice of aspen and floral landscapes as subject matter in my watercolor paintings are somewhat impressionistic with a southwestern flair and are prompted by my living in the Foothills of Evergreen, Colorado. I am surrounded by the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and especially the aspen trees and wildflowers that grow in my yard. When painting these “scapes”, I move easily between quarter, half and full size sheets of 300 pound watercolor paper. I pay close attention to space and color since I am a “colorist”. I try to bring the viewer into my aspen and floral “scapes” so that they feel they are standing, sitting or hiking among the aspen trees and wildflowers. I continue to explore the medium of watercolor and it constantly reveals itself to me in different ways and inspires me to be more creative.
