Piece description from the artist
This painting has been varnished and is ready to hang with professional wire hanger, and dust cover for protecting the art.
This image is a scene from outside Jackson Hole Wyoming, during a rainy afternoon. The scene is a representation of cleanliness, and majesty. The trees are the darkest thing found in the image, they represent our lives during difficult times. The rain represents unpleasant experiences that shape our lives for the better like nourishing, cleaning, and refining us. The clouds represent the presence of God in our lives at all times. Even though we see only darkness, above there is great light. Gods light shines down on us during difficult times, and is the source that pulls us through.
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.
