Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist

                  Louise Sackett (Born 1947)

               ARTIST'S STATEMENT
 

"Working in plein air means that I do not dictate what I will find that day. I may not have studio control over lighting, transience of subject (yes they moved the darned boat), even of what the weather does.

 

What little control a plein air painter has is found in the mind, the command of composition, the colors used and not used, the emphasis placed and the facility with materials. But mostly the empathy of understanding, the feeling conveyed.
