Feeling a deep connection with nature, Terry Sauve is inspired by the magical quality of natural light falling over a scene. Capturing this light is one focus of her paintings, as is “pushing” the color found in nature to enhance the painting. Her method includes taking photographs, making sketches and/or color studies on location. From these references she works on larger finished paintings in her studio. Here, she transmits what she has absorbed from studying color and light in nature into her paintings. Her most recent work reflects her love of the beautiful scenery of Northern California and the Northwest.
