Homage to grant wood

Homage to Grant Wood

Piece description from the artist

I was doing a bunch of thumbnail studies when I came up with this idea of old garden shovels. They have so much character. And have turned a lot of soil. The red paint still shows on one of the wooden handles, but it's the metal that is the star. Lots of color make up the tones of metal and it really comes across well in this painting.

About Elizabeth B. Tucker

La Canada, CA

Originally from upstate New York, Elizabeth Tucker moved to Southern California in her early twenties. While she had always worked with her hands in the "needle arts":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Needlepoint, it was her husband who encouraged Elizabeth to begin drawing and painting when he gave her an easel as a gift. Seeking teachers who would instruct her in the classical tradition, Elizabeth studied at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art (LAAFA) and the Art Center College of Design and took private classes with artists "Ryan Wurmser":http://ryanwurmseratelier.blogspot.com/ and "Aaron Westerberg":http://www.westerberg-fineart.com.

Although the majority of her work is in oil, Elizabeth enjoys working in other mediums such as ink, pastel, block prints and watercolor.

A multi-award winning artist and certified instructor in the Michael Wilcox School of Colour, Elizabeth is a member of the "Pasadena Society of Artists":http://www.pasadenasocietyofartists.org, and "Women Painters West":http://www.womenpainterswest.org/home.html as well as the president of the "Angeles Crest Art Guild":http://www.angelescrestartguild.com/. :http://www.angelescrestartguild.com/.
