Welcome to my Website!

On this website  I have photos of some of my favorite paintings (aren’t they all?), musings about painting, and notes on road trips that I take.

They are all intertwined — the road trips trigger thoughts about the landscape: what feelings are going through me while I’m experiencing the landscape? can those thoughts be expressed through a 2-D medium? what mediums will I use to best express the sense of place that I experienced?

My goal is to have the viewer see beyond the “place” and see/feel the sense of place.

All paintings are for sale; please contact me at sparksgretchen@gmail.com for pricing.
