I draw and paint the connection to the heart; the feeling of places, events, environments. My muse is nature. I am inspired by its form, light, and patterns that speak of its function, interconnecting with all to make up this world of ours. My paintings reflect the light that radiates from each subject’s source that shines the power of both experience and place. I love to see deep into the ordinary to express its extraordinary." 💚Please enjoy the studio tour of Paula's home work space. . #sketchjournaling #visualstoryteller #heartist #pastel #watercolor #pleinair #instructor #carpinteriaarts #carpinteriaartscenter #lyndafairlycarpinteriaartscenter
