ArtWalk Sale — Michele Brewster

ArtWalk 2013, as in previous years, has been a great way to exhibit my work. This year, Olds Shopper’s Drug Mart has provided this opportunity, and I have been fortunate to have had someone purchase one of my paintings. It always inspires me when someone enjoys a piece and wants to take it home.

I don’t paint to please an audience; I paint to please myself. In my work, the details are really important. It’s like writing a novel. If you don’t have the details, you don’t have a story; you just have a summary. I love blending soft edges and colours, and I put layer after layer to get luminosity. I never run out of ideas. My goal is to keep improving my work, and to appreciate the wealth of inspiration so close to home in Alberta.
