I've been experimenting with various ways to approach figures lately. I am taking a figure drawing class with Diane Rappisi at North River Arts Society that is based on grasping the gesture or "body language". That, as a subject, has always excited me. Especially people doing what people do on the beach. See more of my latest attempts on my website; www.nancycolella.com. Today I used black to draw my map. A la Ken Auster and Karin Jurick. My two idols.

I am a full time oil painter living and working the South Shore of Boston. My goal as a painter is to say as much as I can, with as few "well placed" brushstrokes as possible. My paintings are intuitive and spontaneous, meant to engage the viewer in a specific moment in time.
This blog is designed to share a quick glimpse into my process of painting. All paintings are for sale by contacting the artist. firstname.lastname@example.org
