Ann Moeller Steverson: Painting, Studio 2069
My work shows reality viewed through a lens slightly clouded with fantasy and corresponds to my romantic view of the world. I like the idea of being a part of the long history of realistic oil painters, and I enjoy painting a wide variety of traditional subject matters including the figure, landscapes, and still life. When I paint the figure, I am interested in exploring emotional connections, relationships, sensuality, and mood. My landscapes and still lifes often reflect my study of light and dark. I am intrigued with the art of painting softly. Much of my work has an atmospheric effect and very soft edges.
