Project Description

Anna Lancaster

Artist – Wilsonville, Oregon

The mystery and beauty of creation is my inspiration. I believe creativity is one the most precious gifts given to humanity. I’m stopped in my tracks. The moment locks me into the sight, sound scent and emotion of the experience. I must paint this. The urgent dance of brush and pallet knife in oils begins. i whisper a prayer, “Lord, help me to tell this story. Guide me with the training You have granted. Help to create a painting that is uplifting and inspiring which communicates my gratitude of life and the goodness that can be found in it.
