"ColorScapes" is the name of the series that Rachel developed in a series of landscapes designed to see beyond the naked eye.. She uses bright colors to emote how she feels under the desert skies. She starts each painting plein air and then adds colors!

ABOUT THE ARTIST Artist Statement for ColorScapes Series I nspired by the beauty of the Southwest, these are not your average Plein Air Paintings. The series began in 2004 on a road trip around the Southwestern deserts. Each painting is created on-site with the intuition, color and vision of the desert as the artist's visionary eye sees it. Each subject matter is selected through a process of scouting and sketching and painting. The colors are added in a layering process similar to lightness and care of a watercolor. The visionary, "psychedelic," colors are interpreted from what is seen with the eye and what is intuited from the land with the heart. Each tree, cloud, cactus and mountain has a source of light from within that the artist can fine tune...
