Piece description from the artist
This painting was inspired by the view from my apartment window and the blue skies which turn to orange early evening as the California sun sets and then black as night sets in. I watch the colours change all day and it gives me a great deal of creative energy.
Elizabeth Conley began painting in 2004 when she was living in Melbourne, Australia and desperately needing a creative outlet. Connecting with her creativity was a surprising venture as she always considered herself the organizer behind the scenes and never the talent.
Throughout her development as a an artist, Elizabeth has found that painting can be an arduous yet worthwhile mental process and she is inspired to begin a piece by simply seeing a certain color. Elizabeth considers art essential to her everyday life and survival; it is what she needs to breathe and painting weaves its way in to her every living moment.
Elizabeth currently lives in Los Angeles, California and her work hangs in several private homes and offices around the world including London, Sydney, Melbourne and Los Angeles.
