Bettie Eubanks
July 30 through August 20



ARTIST STATEMENT

 My paintings are created as a snapshot of time to be enjoyed while being in the present. 

I am most comfortable by the water, enjoying the harmony and balance and the freedom of change with each wave.

 I work in acrylic because of its ability to forgive…like the sand that forgives the wave each time it comes ashore. I call myself a colorist because I’m equally comfortable with bold and bright waves of color and the soft tones offering forgiveness as needed, to deliver the well being of the subject.

 When sharing my work there is often an out stretched hand wanting to touch the painting. 

The texture invites the viewer.  I approve!
