Piece description from the artist
This painting is a depiction of Carthage Jail, in Carthage Illinois. It was here that the Latter-day Saint (or Mormon) prophet Joseph Smith Jr. was martyred. The jail is now a peaceful and spiritual place for church historians, and believers. The peace felt in this place was remarkable and I hoped to convey it in this painting.
Brandy Cattoor finds motivation in portraying simple everyday scenes. Her work has been inspired by the Impressionist painters, and various artists such as Wayne Thiebaud, Charles Demuth, and Edward Hopper. Brandy graduated with a Bachelors degree of Fine Art in oil painting from Brigham Young University Idaho in 2011. She currently studies at the Art Students League of Denver. Brandy has completed commission work for portrait drawings and oil paintings. The artist is primarily interested in landscapes and architectural painting. She is also strongly attracted to intimate portraits and still life scenes. In addition to painting Brandy also enjoys making handmade paper products where her paper work has been shown at the Denver International Airport, and various other local shows. While the artist enjoys creating in various forms, painting remains a strong part of her. She says “When I am creating I feel a fullness of joy. It’s as if painting is part of my soul.” Brandy would like to have her work in various homes across the world, and hopes that her artwork will provide peace to others.
