Brilliant Colors

“Before we bought our acreage it was a cow pasture. Only a handful of trees remained. It has been wonderful to see the new ones come up so healthy and strong.”

Val’s love of her trees is reflected in her art. Brilliantly colored  aspen landscapes are painted in a loose, bold, semi-abstract and somewhat impressionistic style she likes to call “color dabbing”.

“My hope for you as the viewer is that you feel happy when you look at my paintings.”
