Embrace, by Caroline Jasper

So much of art is about sculpting emotion into a physical form. It's about taking the feelings of a place and transferring it to a piece of paper. Occasionally I'll find myself driving through fields I knew from childhood and I feel myself saying, "Aaah. This is why the Caroline Jaspers and the Dale Laitinens of the world paint the land."

 

I asked Caroline "what are you trying to capture in what you paint?"

A note from Caroline Jasper about the above painting:

One day this quiet shoreline was introduced to me by friends, now married many years, as the place where they met. I was captivated by their special place. At twilight, sparkling warm hue reflections gilded the water, then too quickly disappeared with the setting sun.
