Vivian is an accomplished artist of quite varied subject matter; but inherent in all her works is the beauty of color and how it is affected by light and shade. She works in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil--always striving to achieve beauty in each medium through her emotional use of color and tone. Vivian has been professionally active in group and individual shows since 1975. She regularly teaches pastel, portraiture, colored pencil, and is also in demand for demonstrations and workshops in these disciplines as well as in watercolor. Of particular interest is painting on location. The excitement and involvement with the moment is particularly rewarding. "The whole body, and its senses, is involved with nature because of the urgency to depict an increasingly changing scene," says Vivian. Contact the Artist, Vivian Ripley, at 614-451-6254 for prices.
