Description My original oil painting of the famous Lombardi Ranch, a local landmark farm in Santa Clarita, California. Every year they have a sunflower or corn maze, as well as locally grown pumpkins and produce. This painting was done the day before a devastating wildfire swept through the property, destroying homes and part of the Ranch. It lives on, however, much to the delight of locals.
Denise R. Brown, Santa Clarita, California Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement Denise Rutledge Brown has combined a unique perception of natural surroundings to create ‘moment in time’ landscapes marked by strong contrasts of light and dark, warm and cool colors, and abstracted backgrounds with detailed foregrounds. She works in oil and watercolor painting and photography. Her process is direct and spontaneous, which gives her work a fresh feeling that reflects the fresh air it is inspired by.
