Kristy Vantrease

My paintings express serenity both in the ocean scenes and the small wooden boats floating along the shoreline. Since I started painting in watercolors before switching to oils, Iā€™m always layering the paint. This enables me to get beneath the surface and create the depth and luminosity that I crave in paintings.
Like so many of us, I share memories of wonderful days spent on and near the water with family and friends. I wanted to take the viewer back in time and hope you find a feeling of peacefulness, calm and tranquility in my paintings.
