Bio of Dorothy Snowden

"Living in a rural environment gives me an abundance of subject material no matter the season. Ranch life has cycles, from spring foaling and calving, summer haying, fall weaning to winter feeding. Each offers a new color palette and emotions, which I try to capture in vivid colors, either on canvas or sanded  pastel paper. My landscapes are impressionistic, with brushstrokes of generously applied material, yielding texture to the surface. In my equine images, I strive to capture the grace and movement of horses at liberty or in competition.
