Lora Witt is a Denver native who captures on canvas the unnoticed intimate landscapes she finds throughout the west.
“As I explore the abundance of this region, my approach is to capture the overlooked parts of nature’s beauty and share it with my viewer,” says Witt.
Whether her subject is spring shadows draping over a bleached poplar, autumn foliage swirling in a shallow pool, or tangled twigs surrounding a prickly pear cactus, each scene gives the viewer a glimpse ... an intimate landscape.
“I paint what I see from my vantage point. In this way, my viewer stands with me as I discover the inspiration of my next work.”
While the subjects of her works are based on her outdoor experiences, she enjoys painting in her studio. Using oil paints, her method involves layering thin coats of pigment to develop a richer and more tangible feel. Then as the paintings evolve, she looks to the words in her well worn anthology of Robert Frost poetry to inspire a title for each work.
Lora has exhibited throughout Colorado and New Mexico.
