"Sunlight Aspen", Oil on canvas, 50"x50"

JANYRAE SEDA

While exploring, I often make detours on roads less traveled for subject matter, and my process begins with an idea or a place, real or imaginary. I proceed with a series of sketches to full size drawings and finally to canvas. I build up areas with many layers using a brush, and pallet knife, eventually achieving a vibrant thick color.

I am exploring a way of painting my experiences, relying on my intuitive color choices, depicting less finite forms, and allowing gesture to create wonder. I understand how I am invested in the Idaho landscape, and the biggest shift in the work has been moving from representing the subject realistically, to using a limited color range, composition and intimate scale to flirt with abstraction.
