Weekly Oil Paintings
by Sister Maresa Lilley, SND


9×12″ oil on stretched canvas; click on painting for purchase information.


For one American artist, Dan McCaw, whose work I admire, paintings are about contrasts and interesting shapes; about warm color played against cool color; about patterns of light balanced with patterns of dark. So this simple painting is about all of the above. It is not so much about the young woman herself, but about the striking elements she and nature afforded me one day.
