Cranford NJ’s Beautiful Landscapes Inspires Artists
“One thing about living in Cranford NJ is that I am never short on inspiration! Cranford is full of ‘hidden treasures’ and one such area I cannot get enough of is literally the views from my backyard. As a studio artist, my process is to take photos which I view and reference back in my studio. One particular May morning, l ventured into my backyard and peered along the creek. The hazy, misty sky gave such a mystical feeling that I knew I had to paint it. I grabbed my camera and started clicking, knowing I had to capture this moment…this feeling…on canvas. This 18″x 18″ oil on canvas is actually the second time I have painted this moment. Lucky for me, Cranford constantly provides me with new and beautiful inspiration!”
