A great painting goes beyond merely capturing a likeness of the landscape, still-life, or object. As paint is applied to the canvas an opportunity to enhance the essence of the emotion felt is enabled through composition, color, brush strokes, and a heightened luminous energy contrasted by shadows.
LaVonne wants to have her viewer feel the emotion she feels about each painting; whether it be love, passion, freedom, comfort, whimsy, warmth, power, serenity, beauty, tenderness, etc.
“Sometimes the name of the painting comes to me before I even start, and at other times it is revealed while bringing out the essence of each work of art. The pitcher of Cranberry Raspberry Juice Cocktail said, “Refreshing” to me. “Wild and Free” revealed itself as I was painting the horses’ wild mane and bringing out the dynamic nature of his spirit.”
If her viewer would like to live in the “English Cottage” because it looks so cozy, cheery and bright, nestled in an English country-side full of greenery and beauty, LaVonne has met her intentions of relaying the feelings about that scene.
“I am very fortunate and grateful to have so many friends, coaches, and genuinely enthusiastic people in my life who have helped and encouraged me in this fascinating endeavor.”
