About Mara Catherine Sippel

I think of art as translation of surroundings. Most everyone translates her/his surrounding world through some medium and sometimes it works out as a defined form of art. I happen to love mixing paint into colors that are sometimes soft and sometimes vibrant, often as a reaction I have to something appearing in my world or missing from it. My landscapes are often beckoning the viewer to the ocean and cityscapes are brightly colored buildings. Objects around the home, chairs, shoes, bowls of fruit are colorful and comforting. I leave any debris or rough texture on the canvas lending more interest to the painting, whether its acrylic or oil. Although not a formally schooled artist I have taken classes in plein air and in studio locally and practice in my own studio several times a week. This will be my second year participating in SVOS.
