Artist Lisa Snow Lady
Seattle, Washington, USA
This piece titled “Back Alley” was inspired by an afternoon walk in a neighborhood not far from my home. I enjoy walking through alleys and viewing the often overlooked “back side of things”, like an embroidery’s underside. In this scene I was struck by the simple depiction of urban density with the cars all lined up on the side of the street and the loading truck at the end of the block. I also loved the way late afternoon sunlight played off the geometric planes of the buildings and created shadows on the street. For this work I created a very structured sepia-colored underpainting in acrylic paint and barely touched into it with the blues and violets to keep it fresh and spontaneous
My artist influences include Wayne Thiebaud for his depictions of Bay Area urban streets, Richard Diebenkorn for his abstraction of shapes and expressionist color palette, and Johaness Vermeer and his quiet simplicity and sophistication in his paintings.
