Painter Kadri Brattvet is the featured artist for January. Kadri’s paintings were created entirely on site from direct observation. This method, while often physically difficult, gives her work an authentic and original, artistic quality and spirit. The compositions, colors, textures, light—all aspects of the paintings—are inspired by her special vision of the subject she chooses to portray. The result is a work of art which is always fresh and alive, rewards repeated viewing, and inspires reflection and contemplation.
