Erin Dertner, oil painting on canvas, framed. A scene inspired by Erin's visit to a Sonoma lavender farm, with a cozy home tucked under the hills, and lush rows of lavender plants in bloom in the foreground. Image size 9 inches by 12 inches, framed size 13 inches by 16 inches.
A long-time Mendocino plein air artist, Erin is proficient in oils with a palette knife, oils with brushes, watercolors, and acrylics.
Painting, studying and teaching the subject of light is Erin’s driving force. The cool shadows of the early morning and those that fall long and warm in the evening enliven her creative soul as nothing else. Subject matter is secondary to the sunlight itself, though her locations speak volumes about God’s wondrous world of color, drama and mystery.
