Landscape that moves
Landscape is artist Paula Fasken’s inspiration. Nature walks in the mountains provide this impressionistic painter unlimited possibilities for compositions.
“My primary focus is the relationship of sunlight to the brilliant and diverse colors of the land. Although I try to place emphasis on the underlying abstract design, my ultimate challenge is to express the essence of the subject and share this reaction with the viewer,” Fasken said.Fasken studied at the University of Kentucky; however, seminars and travels abroad have enhanced her love and knowledge of art and continue to be her preferred avenues of learning.
A professional artist since 1975, Fasken has made her permanent home in Colorado but still maintains a studio in New Mexico. Known for watercolor and oil paintings of Southwest and European imagery, the artist has exhibited regionally, nationally and in selected invitational shows. Paintings by Fasken are represented in public and private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. She will be at the Cogswell booth at the Vail Art and Wine Faire from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. today, and in the gallery from 2-7 p.m.
