Liz Brady has been living and painting in Santa Barbara for the past 30 years. Studies of earth, sky, ocean and animal life are prevalent in her most recent work. The organic shapes and patterns of these forms are diverse, intriguing, and beautiful to me. Liz is moved by their simplicity and their complexity. Her earthy and watery palette is inspired by these forms and is full of rich greens, blues, yellows, and browns. She paints with oil and graphite on wood panels so she can scratch and sand the surface as she paints a many-layered finish.
